The Characters and Scenes of the Novels 
and Short Stories 
Alphabetically Arranged 













Troiooh the popular interest in Dickens has oaDed inrth various Dickens 
Diotkmaries, there has so far been no correepcmding refraenoe book for 
the novels of his great contemporary. To nq^fy tiiis need is the aim 
of the present Thackeray Dictionary. 

Am pkoeefs in the field the oompileis have not been so ambHioas as to 
•tleiiq[>t absolute completeness. It might be interesting and desirable 
to have a real Thackeray Encyclopsedia which should contain information 
«i an points oonneoted fai any way with Thackeray's writings. The 
present work, however, is simply a dictionary of the novels and of such 
of the short stories as are to be found in the Biographical edition of 
Tliaokeray'i worin paUished by Messrs. Smith, Elder, and Co. In view 
of tiie fact that lo many of Thackeray's shortw pieces are midway in 
form between an essay or sketch and a short story, the term short story 
haa been coi^. •'^red as sufficiently elastic to cover such sketches as con- 
tain either definite character drawing or many fiotttknu namee. Hnt 
best example of this is the Book of Snoba. 

The aim has been to include in the Dictionary the names of all characters, 
either fiotitkniB or hMotieal, HbaA take a definite part, however RmaU, in 
the action of a novel or short story. Allusions are, of course, omitted, 
ftstitioas place names— towns, rivers, streets, etc.— are included, but 
n*l aames <rf tiiis sort have been, as a rale, omitted, as their inclusion 
would have made the list ill its pieaen* form too cumbersome. Except 
in the case of the vanona bndatqoea hlrtraioai charaoten have beoi 
differeotiated from fictitious. 

Much has been written about od^^inab, or supposed originals, of many 
of Thackeray's characters. In some cases Thackeray undoubtedly drew 
from Hfe, but the mania for tracing prototjrpes has led to many identifica- 
tions for which there is littie foundatioii. Whoever the ideniifioation 
of a character with an original rests on good authority, the original is 
given here ; but if the authority is questionable, the identification has 
not been accepted. In view oi tiM many faiaecwaoieB tiaog this Hne, it 
has seemed best, in all cases, to give the authority for the identification. 
For some originab many authorities might be quoted. Where thwe is 


suoh abundance of evidence the authority whkh mmdi on the whole HtB 
best has been chosen for citation. 

In the matter of the form of proper names, the usage of the Bio- 
graphical edition has been followed, and when there are variations in this 
edition, as, for example, Clavering St. Mary and Clavering St. Mary's, one 
form has been chosen. The titles of the stories and sketches, also, are 
those of the Biographical edition, and the more important changes from 
the original titles have been indicated in the Synopses. The bibliographical 
information given in the Synopses is intended to cover only the points of 
most interest to the general reader. The reader who wishes fuller 
information will naturally turn to the several excellent bibliographies 
of Thackeray, particularly to that by Lewis Melville in his WiUiam 
Makepeace Thackeray (1910). 

We take this opportunity to express our appreciation of the help which 
we have received during the progress of the work. Our thanks are due to 
the officials of the British Museum, and to those of the Astor Bibraiy (New 
York Public Library), for the unfailing courtesy with which our many 
demands upon the resources of these libraries have been met. Especially 
we wish to aokiMwledge our indebtedness to Miss Buoy W. Baxter, for 
information received from her, and to Major WilUam H. Bambert, for 
access to his unrivalled Thackeray coUection, and for information derived 
from unpublished material in his possesstUm.

Bony Lyndon is the autobiography of an Irish adventurer, who relates 
his varied experiences with an absolute &itii ^t he and Ui moiiTes 
have always been right, but tells his tale in aoidi a way tiuH nader 
is never in doubt of his utter scoundrelism. 

After his father's death, Redmond Barry (later called Barry Lyndon) 
IS brought up by his mother at Brady's Town, in Ireland, where he is 
spoUed and indulged, and by sixteen has becorae an unmitigated rascal 
At this age he falls in love with his cousin, Nora Brady, who is eight 
years his semor. Captain Quin, a Well-to-do but cowardly English officer 
pays court to Nora and is aooepied. When Barry discovers this, he 
quarrels with Q^un and fights a duel, in which he is tricked into thinking 
that he aas killed Quin. In order to get him out of the way while Quin 
and Nora are married, the Bradys ship him off to DaUin, cm the plea 
«iat he may be arrested for Quin's murder. Under the name of Barrr 
Mdmood he lives a fast life in Dublin, and, having fallen in with a se") 
of rascals and run badly in debt, avoids the consequences of his ink- 
deeds by eating as a private soldier. His regiment is sent abroad to 
toe Seven Tears War, and he is present at the battles of Minden and 
Warburg. After this, Barry is hurt in a quarrel with a comrade, aikl he 
and Lieutenant Faktnham, a wounded officer, are cared for at the same 
houfie. Barry deserts from the army Iqr imprasonating this oiBoer. While 
passing himself oflP as Pakenhom, Barry falls in with Galgenstein, a Prus- 
Ma reoraiting officer, who suspects his disguise and impceaaea him for 



•erring Oaplain de Potadorf m a spy Barry rises in favour, Imt eaonot 

persuade his Captain to secure his discharge. When he is detailed to 
spy upon the Chevalier de Balibari, the Bavarian envoy, he disoovem 
1dm to bs his lost uncle, Cornelius Barry. Barry and Ids vnols enter 
into a conspiracy for card-sharping, and when things begin to get too 
hot for them Barry deserts from the army disguised as the Chevalier. 
^\fter wandering over Euro^, working different gambling games, Baiiy 

and the Chevalier de Balibari try their fortune in the Duchy of X , 

where Barry hopes to make a rich marriage. Here Barry gambles with 
the wild young Chevalier de Magny and gets him in his power. Magny 
has been carrying on an intrigue with the Princess Olivia, the wife of 

Duke lector of X , and when the Doke dfaoovem this, Magny is 

arrested and thrown into prison, where he commits suicide. After this 
suicide and the tragic death of the Princess Olivia, Barry and his uncle, 
who have bem implicated in the affair, are dismissed from the Duohy. 
At Spa Barry pursues his trade as a gambler and falls in with Sir Charles 
£3mdon and his rich wife, the Countess of Lyndon. Knowing that Sir 
Charles's health is failing, Barry resolves to be the Countess's second 
husband, and begins to court her. When he later hears of the death of 
Sir Oiaries, he hastens to Ireland to lay siege to Cady Lyndon. In Ire- 
land Barry pursues the Countess with such persistency that, after fighting 
a duel witii Eord George Poynings, another suitor, suborning the Coun« 
tees's household, and spreading hbe and oompcomJsing reports aboat 
her, he frightens her into manying him. He changes his name to Barry 
Lyndon and starts on a wild career of prodigality, and in a short time 
has dissipated or involved all of the Countess's property that Iw can 
touch. After tiie birth of his son, Bryan, he is more cruel than ever to 
his silly wife and to his stepson. Viscount Bullingdon, whom he hates 
because he is Lady Lyndon's heir. Bullingdon finally runs away. After 
he has involved himself heavily in debt, Barry is forced to live in retire- 
ment upon his Irish estates, where, with his motiier's assistance, he keeps 
close guard over Lady Lyndon, for fear she may escape from him. His 
reputation goes from bad to worse, and he is shunned by respectable 
people and dves only with boon companions. Sally's jroong son Bryan 
meets a violent death, and after this Lady Lyndon tries to escape from 
her husband's power, but her plans are discovered by his sharp old mother. 
Finally, howevw, he is forced to release his hold on his wife, and goea 
abroad to live on • pension. In spite of various attempts, Bany never 
quite succeeds in winning over Lady Lyndon to live witih him again. 
After her death his pension is discontinued, and he ends his days miser- 
ably in the Fleet Prison, where he falls into a state of imbecility before 
bis deatii, and is hi&SaSty oand for by his dd mother. 

NoU.—" Tb» Prinoess's Tragedy," tiie stray wMiin a story iridoh k 

told in chapters x-xii of Barry's narrative, is based, according to the 
extract from Thackeray's notebook which Lady Ritchie quotes, on 


B'Empire, ou, Due am sous Napoleon, par un Chambellaa, Paris, 4 toIs. 
1836."* The story is given in volume i, pp. 220-45, and is very evidently 
the foundation of the chapters in Barry. Thackeray has elaborated the 
eulier part <rf the story as it appears in L' Empire ; has supplied the 
Princess's lover with a more definite personality, added some incidents 
in their intrigue, invented the whole affair of the emerald, and changed 
the manner of the lover's deatii ; bat the relations of Vba Frinoe and 
Princess, her attitude towards her unworthy lover, her frenzied attempt 
to escape after the latter's death, and, above all, her private execution 
by Monsieur de Strasbourg, all appear in the Krenoh hirtmy much as 
they are reported by the veraoioas Baizy Ayndim.

The town of Oldborough returns two members to Parliament— Sir 
George Gorgon, Tory, and William Pitt Scully, Esq., Liberal. There had 
onoe been two lory members, but when the local heiress jilted Scully, 
then only a young attorney, and married Sir George Gorgon, Scully 
vowed revenge, and at the end of e^hteen years defeats Sir George's 
man and becomes himself first mnnber for Oldboroogh. Scully is still 
in love with Eady Gorgon, but is treated disdainfully by her, especially 
at the Race Ball at Oldborough, wnere the Scully and Gorgon factions 
clash, and ScuUy's lively young adherent, VerUim, meets ffir George's

and wh«i iMwly Gorgon discovers their secret she forbids the engage- 
ment. John, who considers Scully the greatest man in England, consults 
him about his engagement and tells him that his uncle, Mr. Josiah Cramp, 
ton, ha? promised him a place in tiic Tape and Sealfag Wax Office. Scully, 
who wants this particular place for a nephew, reproac' es John for his 
willingness to accept a government sinecure, and gets him to promise to 
give it up. Mr. Crampton, however, reveals Scully's donble dealing, 
persuades John to keep his place, and, indignant at Lady Gorgon's oppo- 
sition to his nephew, promises to force her consent. The Gorgons want 
a peerage, and have been besieging Mr. Crampton for his support. Mr. 
Crampton, who wants another vote for the Ministerial candidate for the 
Speftkenhip, tells Ba^ Gorgon Hat tiie chances of a peerage will be 
better if she can persuade Scully to vote for the Ministerial instead of for 
the Liberal candidate. Scully, still in love with Lady Goigon, allow*

" The Hbtoiy of Henry Esmraid " is tiie story ot the career of a sen* 

sitive, high-minded young man, wrongly suffering under the stigma of 
illegitimacy, who is influenced by two strong emoticms— gratitude to* 
wards his protectors, which leads him to forego his daim idien he ffn& 
tiiat he is the rightful owner of their title and estates ; and love for an 
ambitious woman, which makes him wish to make a name and poaitiaa 
to offer her. The sombre drama of his adventures is played out befam 
a brilliant historioal background of the Marlborough wan, Jacobite 
0ots for the Bretender, and the social and literary life of the London 
ai Queen Ama'a day. 


Henry Esmond is the son of Thomas Esmond, who has married his 
cousin, Isabel Esmond, vithoat revealing to her the fact that he is 
already married to a Flemish girl, Henry's mother, whom he has de- 
serted. On the death of Isabel's father, Thomas Esmond becomes Lord 
Castlewood, and Henry, who is generally looked upon as illegitimate, is 
brought from Ealing to Castlewood and made page to Lady Castlewood. 
Henry is edaoated by Father Holt, a Jesuit, and takes aa innooent part 
in some Jacobite plots. On Lord Castlewood's death at the Battle of 
the Boyne, his title and estates pass to his cousin. Colonel Francis Esmond. 
The new lord and his beautiful young wife treat Henry kindly. Henry 
brings the smallpox from the village to Castlewood ; Lady Castlewood 
loses a little of her beauty, and she and Lord Castlewood sure estranged. 
Henry acts as tutor to their children, Frank and Beatrix Esmond, and 
later is sent to Cambridge by Lady Castlewood. On his return to Castle- 
wood, Henry finds there the dissipated Lord Mohan, who is gambling 
with Lord Castlewood and trying to make love to Lady Castlewood. 
Henry tries to prevent trouble, but Mohun and Castlewood finally fight 
a duel in London, in which the lattw is fatally wounded. Before his 
death Lord Castlewood confesses to Henry that he is legitimate and the 
rightful Viscount, but Henry bums the confession and promises his 
patron that his son Frank shall succeed him. Lady Castlewood casts 
Henry off for his share in the duel, and, after having been in prison for 
• year for having acted as Lord Castlewood's second, Heiuy is taken into 
favour by his father's widow, the Dowager Lady Castlewood, and goes 
abroad to the Wars of the Succession in Spaiiu Heniy returns to Tj^n gi*™! 
At Winchester he sees Lady Castlewood and Frank in tiie cathedral, and 
they are reconciled to him. He finds Beatrix grown up, and falls in love 
with her. Returning to the wars, Henry makes the campaign of 1704 
and is woimded at Blenheim. On recovwii^, he again retnnis to mn gliwl, 
where he meets General Webb, is snubbed by Marlborough, and finds 
Beatrix the reigning beauty. On rejoining the army, he and Frank take 
part m the Battle of Ramillies, and in Brussels Henry meets Father Holt 
in disguise, and hears more of his mother's story. After the Battle of 
Wynendael, Henry, m ardent partisan of General Webb, fights a duel 
with Lord Mohun, and then returns with Webb to England, where he 
is made colonel, and leams that Beatrix is to marry Lord Ashbumhun. 
On tiie dMth of the Dowagw Lady Castlewood, Houy inhorits her smdl 
fortune, and Iiady Castlewood leams his secret. After Frank's marriage 
abroad, Beatrix, who is still unmarried, becomes engaged to the Duke 
of Hamilton, and leams of Henry's abdication of his rightful title. When 
•11 preparations for the marriage are made the Duke fights a duel with 
Lord Mohun, in which both are killed. In ordc to please Beatrix, Henry 
engages in a plot to bring the Pretender to England, to have him de- 
clared heir to tiie throne just before the death of Queen Anne. The 
plot fails, tiuongh the Prince's frivolity and his admiration for Beatrix. 


After Beatrix flees to join the Prince, Henry marries Bady Castkwood 
and arttlM in l^rginia cm eatotes given him by Frank.

cally unaltered, the names of most of the characters are changed. 

Frederick Eovel, a City man of good fortune and domestic tastes, is 
a widower who, since his wife's death, has been taken in hand by his 
mother-in-law. Though his wife's exacting and domineering temper had 
not aDowed him much happiness during her life-time, he finds himself 
worse off after her death, as lady Baker, his motiier-in-law, interferes 
with his habits, spoils his children, meddles with Us servants, quarrels 
witii hb own motiier, who, thoi^^ she has married again, still keeps a 
watchful eye on her eldest son. Mjss Prior, the governess, a quiet, hand-

love with the governess, who encourages all of them. When the awful

once danced at a theatre, Lady Baker orders her to leave the house ; 
but Lovel asks her to remain tm his wife, and altows his motiier-m-law

The Newcomes has little connected plot, and is less a story than a study 
in family history, covering three generations and many individuals, 
though the main interest centres about three members of the family 
CHQly— the chivahrous old Colonel, his son CUve, and his niece, the beau- 
timl, h^h-sirfrited Etiid. It is also a study in contrasts between the 
unworidliness of the Colonel on the one hand, and, on the other, (ha 
different kinds of worldliness of his half-bro«h«is and tiidr f^miiw 


Thomas Newcome, a weaver who makes his fortune in Sondon, has 
one son, Thomas, by his first wife, and twin sons, Brian and Hobwm, 
by his second wife, the wealthy Miss Hobson. Young Thomas docs not 
receive sympathetic treatment from his stepmother. When hardly more 
than a boy, he falls in love with L^onore de Blois, and when this attach- 
ment is discovered he is sent to India with a oouuniMion in the army, 
and Mademoiselle de Blois is married to the Comte de Florae. In India 
Tliomas Newcome rises to the rank of colonel, marries Mrs. Casey, » 
widow, and after his wife's death sends his only son, Clive, home to Eng- 
land to bo educated. After a nnmber of years Colonel Newcome retanu 
from India on leave, takes Clive from school at Grey Friars, makes the 
acquaintance of his half-brothers, who are now wealthy bankers, and 
starts housekeeping with his old friend, James Binnie, who is later joined 
by his sister, Mrs. Mackenzie, and her daughter Rosey. Clive Newcome 
Is much indulged by his father, who allows him to choose art as a pro- 
fession, and the young man becomes a student at Gandish's academy. 
The Colonel is anxious to arrange a marriage between Clive and Ethel, 
Sir Brian Newcome's daughter, to whom tite Colonel himself is mnch 
attached ; but his plan is opposed by Etiiel's brother, Barnes, and her 
grandmother, old Lady Kew. After spending three years in England, 
Colonel Newcome retoms to India, and dive toaveb on the C(mtin«it. 
At Baden, Clive encounters Ethel and her family, and faUs in love with 
her in earnest. Finding that he is growing too fond of Ethel, whose 
engagement to her cousin. Lord Kew, is now aonotmoed, he goes away 
to Rome. Shortly after this Lord Kew's engagement to Ethel is defi- 
nitely broken, dive returns to London from Rome and falls more in 
love with Ethel than ever, following her everywhere. Ethel, however, is 
ambitious for a great marriage, and rejects dive though really fond of 
him. Li tile meantime the Colonel invests his money in the Bnndelcand 
Bank and grows rich rapidly. On his second return to England he tells 
Ethel's brother. Sir Barnes, now the head of the family since Sir Brian's 
death, that he will settle all his money on Clive if Ethd marries Kiiw, 
Bames temporises with the Colonel, and Ethel's engagement to tiie 
Marquis of Farintosh is announced. Barnes treats his wife. Lady dara, 
badly ; and at last she elopes with her former lover. Jack Belsize, now 
Lord Highgate. This elopement opens Ethel's eyes to what a worldly 
marriage witiiont love may mean, and she breaks her engagement to 
Lord Farintosh and devotes herself to Barnes's deserted children, Clive, 
meanwhile, despairing of ever winning Ethel, yields to his father's desire 
to see him setlfed in life, and marries Rosey Mackemde. On Ifr. IMnnie's 
death Rosey inherits hi» money, and she, Clive, and the Colonel live in 
splendour in London, owing to the continued prosperity of the Bundel- 
cund Bank. Clive, unable to forget Ethel, is unhappy with his wife and 
pwtly {Jienated from his father. The Colonel, now more opposed to 
Sii Barnes than ever, contests with him the Parliamentary election at 
Newciwie, and ii ('leoted to Pferiiament Bmm'b piMe. The iftmdel*

Rosey's and Mrs. Mackenzie's as well. Mrs. Mackenzie tyrannises over 
him, and the whole family live in poverty on a small income <rf Roaey'a 
and on what dive can i am as an artist. Ethel tries to help her nncle. 

but the Oolonel rejects her advances with pride and anger. After Mrs. 
Mackenzie's violent temper drives him from CUve's home, the Colonel 
becomes a poor brother at Grey Friars. Etiiel discovers an oU letter 
written by the Colonel's stepmother bequeathing a large sum to Clive, 
which she pays herself as Sir Barnes refuses to honour it. Ethel and the

Pendennis is so largely autobiographical and owes so much ot its atmo- 
sphere to the author's early residence in Devon, his school ai^ coQege 
days, and his journalistic experience in London, that Thackeray's son- 
in-law, Sir Leslie Stephen, has thought it necessary to caution the reader 
against taking tiie incidents of tiie story as actnal facts in the aath<»'s 

Arthur Pendennis (called Pen) is the only child of a retired medical 
man who is much older than his young wife. Laura Bell, the orphan of 
a cousin of Mrs. Pendennis, lives with the Pendennis family at Fairoaks. 
While Pen is at school at Grey Friars his father dies, and he goes home 
to live with his mother and little Laura, both of whom spoil him. When 
he is eighteen Fen falls in love with Miss Fotheringay, an actress, to 


wkom he beoomM engaged, although she is much older than he. His 
mother appeals to his uncle, Major Pendennis, who prevails vpon 
Fotheringay and her father. Captain Ckwtigan, to break the engagemoi*. 
Pen goes to Oxbridge, where he is bright, bat idle and extravagant, and 
ends by failing in his examinations and getting badly in debt. His 
mother pays his debts with her savings and some money which £atir» 
ofiFers her, and Pen returns to the nnivendty long enough to take his 
degree. After this he leads an idle, selfish life at home with his mother 
•nd Baora. When the Claverings and Blanche Amory come to live at 
Clavering Park, Pen amuses himself by flirting idly with Blanche, to 
whom he writes verses. Urged by his mother, he proposes to Baura, 
who, tiiongh not indillennt herself, sees that he does not love her and 
refuses him. Aided by Laura, Pen gets his mother's consent to his going 
to London to study for the Bar. In London Pen forms a friendship with 
Warrington, whose ohambera be shares, reads law for a time, and, after 
his money is exhausted, writes for Bacon & Bungay, and gets on the 
staff of the Pall MaU QaxOk. Pen writes a successful novel, and is in- 
troduced by his unde to BcaidiHi society. Wh«i tiie Claverings come 
to London, Pen renews his acquamtance with Blanche. He introduces 
her to his friend Harry Foker, who falls in love with Blanche at once, 
in spite of the fact that he is engaged to his cousin. Pen's fancy is caught 
by Fanny Bolton, a porter's pretty daughter ; but he rec sts the temp- 
taticm to injure her. When he is ill, alone, and delirious, Fanny nurses 
him without his knowledge, until his mother and Laura arrive and turn 
her out. When Pen is weD, the whole party, inohiding Warrington, and 
later the Major, teavel <m the Continent. While ttiey are abroad Pen 
learns that his mother has suppressed some letters from Fanny to him, 
and he indignantly forces an explanation which shows his innocence. 
Warrington, who, though not free to marry, has faHrai hopdessly in love 
with Laura, tells of his own unfortunate secret marriage. Pen and his 
mother are reconciled, and the latter dies suddenly. After Mrs. Penden- 
nis's death Laura goes to live with a distant relative. Lady Rockminster, 
and Pen returns to London. Through his knowledge of the fact that 
Lady Oavering's first husband, Amory aUaa Altamont, is not dead. 
Major Pendennis forces Sir Francis Clavering to agree to give up his 
seat in Parliament in Pen's favour, and Pen becomes engaged to Blanche 
with this end in view. Meanwhile, however. Pen has grown to love Laura, 
and when he discovers Amory's secret he repudiates the advantages 
which his uncle has secured for him, but, urged by Laura, holds to his 
pledge to Blanche. Blanche, however, temporises, and when the rfcb 
Harry Foker is free accepts him and dismisses Pen. who then becomes 
engaged to Laura. When Foker hears of Blanche's secret correspond- 
ence with her father he breaks the engagement. The validity of Lady 
Oavering's marriage is proved, Altamont flees the conntey, and P^ and 
Win an nuiried.

graphical, particularly in the ohapten deeoriUng Philip Firmia'i reei-

Philip Firmin ia the son of a fashionable London physician who haa 
made a runaway match with a rich woman and become successful after 
a dissolute yontii. PhiUp's mother diee when he to a boy, leaving him 
her fortune of thirty thousand pounds. When Philip is sick at school 
he is nursed by Mrs. Brandon, the "Little Sister," who recognises in 
Dr. Firmin the man who, years before under the assumed name of Bran- 
don, had tricked her into a sham marriage and then deserted her. Philip 
suspects this connection and becomes estranged from his father, but 
returns the " Little Sister's " affection fondly. When quite young Philip 
is attached to his cousin, Agnes Twysd^. While he is rich this attach- 
mmt to moooraged by her family, who are, however, jealons of PhiUp'a 
favour with their rich relative, Lord Ringwood. Mr. Tufton Hunt in- 
stalls himself at Dr. Firmin's house and blackmaito the Doctor, under 
threat of exposing hto manrtoge to lb*. Brandon, wfaidi Hunt, tiie clogy- 
man who performed the ceremony, claims is legal. Having asoer^Ained 
that Mrs. Brandon, out of affection for his son, will not push her claims 
against him, Dr. Firmin turns against Hunt. Instigated by Hunt, the 
Twysdens try to get Mrs. Brandon to make a claim, but she revises. 
Agnes Twysden breaks her engagement to PhiUp to marry the rich Mr. 
Woolcomb. When Philip comes of age, his trustee, General Baynes, 
comes to England. Dr. Firmin flees the countoy, oonfesiiQg tluil he has 
not <mly htst all hto own money in 8i>eculation, Imt has abo made away 
with Philip's fortune by means of a fraud on the trustee. Mrs. Brandon 
and Philip's friends, the Pendeimises, encourage Philip to start out for 
himself, and imtil he can make a living at the Bar he writes for the news- 
papers. While visiting the Pendennis family at Boulogne Philip meets 
General Baynes, who has fled to France with his family to avoid the 
claims which he thinks Philip will make on him. Philip refuses to press 
hu legal claims, and faUs in love with Charlotte, Gennal Baynee's eldest 
daughtw. lbs. Baynes first enoooragee Philip, but latw tries to break 
the engagement, in order to marry Charlotte to a richer man. The en- 
gagement also displeases Lord Ringwood, Philip's rich relative, who

to marry somebody else : hence, bitter trials and grief, patience and 
virtue, for poor little Caroline, and a melancholy ending — as how should 
it have been gay ? The tale was internipted at a sad period of the

Thackeray, in a letter to his mother, stated plainly the idea which 
he wished to embody in Vanity Fair : " What I want is to make a set 
of people living without God in the world (only that is a cant phrase), 
greedy, pompous men, perfectly self-satisfied for the moat part, and at 
eaae aboot thdr aoperior virtue. Dobbin and poor Brigga are the oofy 
two people with real humility as yet. Amelia's is to come whm her 
scoundrel of a husband is well dead with a ball in his odious boweln when 
she haa had aoflerii^, a child, and a rdigion. Bat ahe haa at pteaent a 
quality above most people, whizz— LOVE— by which she shall be saved." 

Amelia Sedley finishes her education at Miss Pinkcrton's Academy and 
goes home, taking with her for a visit her fellow-pupil and friend, Rebecca 
Sharp. Rebecca sets her cap at Amelia's rich brother, Jos Sedley, and 
is laughed at by Amelia's fianc6, George Osborne, and his friend. Captain 
Dobbin. She almost succeeds in getting Jos to propose, but he is fright- 
ened away by a contretempa at Vauxhall. Having failed in her attempts 
<» Joa, Becky gpea to Qneen'a G^wley as govemeaa to Sir FiM Otawkj'a 
dwD^ten, where she wins favour on aU ndaa. Br Pitt's youaget aon, 


Captain Rawdon Crawley, falls in love with her, and his rich aunt, Miss 
Crawley, takes her into favour. When Miss Crawley falls ill, Rebecca 
goes with her to London as her nurse, and secretly marries Rawdon. 
Lady Crawley, Sir Pitt's wife, dies unexpectedly, and Sir Pitt proposes 
to Becky, who then admits her marriage to Rawdon. Miss Crawley 
disinlierits Rawdon, refuses to restore him to favour, in spite of all Becky's 
clever scheming, and at her death, several years later, leaves her fortune 
to Rawdon's elder brother, Pitt. Meanwhile, Mr. Sedley has lost his 
fortune, and old Mr. Osborne forbids George to keep his engagement to 
Amelia and wishes him to marry a rich mulatto. Miss Swartz. At her 
father's command, Amelia frees George from his promise ; but Captain 
Dobbin, who loves Amelia, unselfishly persuades George to keep to the 
engagement. George and Amelia are married, and George is disinherited 
by his father. Rawdon Crawley, Dobbin, ami George Osborne all take 
part m the Battle of Waterloo, and George is killed. Mr. Osborne re- 
fuses to forgive his son's widow, and, after her child is bom, Amelia 
lives in poverty with her father and mother, supported partly by money 
which Dobbin, who is little George's godfather, secretly supplies. Colond 
Rawdon Crawley and Rebecca live fashionably in London on nothing a 
year. They have one child, little Rawdon, of whom Rawdon is very 
fond. Becky neglects both her husband and her child, devotes herself 
entirely to the task of getting on in the fashionable world, and, with 
lord Steyne's backing, becomes a great social success. This lasts until 
Rawdon discovers hoi intrigue with iLiord Steyne, when he strips her of 
her money and jewels, leaves his boy to the guardianship of his brother, 
Sr Ktt, and Lady Jane, Pitt's wife, and accepts the govemonhip of 
Coventry Island, where he later dies. Rebecca finds herself ostracised 
in English society, and sinks into Bohemian life on the Continent. In 
spite of assistance from his son Jos, old Mr. Sedley's affairs go from bad 
to worse, and Amelia, under the pressure of poverty, gives up her son 
Georgy to old Mr. Osborne, who idolises his grandson, but refuses to 
see Amelia. Mrs. Sedley dies, Jos returns from India and cares for his 
father and sister, and Dobbin wishes to marry Amelia, but she refuses 
him. At old Osborne's death a fortune is left to Georgy and a main- 
tenance to Amelia. Jos, Dobbin, Amelia, and Georgy travel on the 
Continent and stay at Pumpernickel. Here they meet Becky, who re- 
gains her former hold over Jos, and so blinds Amelia that the latter takee 
Becky to live with her. Dobbin protests, and when unable to influence 
Amelia, breaks away and returns to England. Eventually Amelia recalls 
Dobbin, and at the same time learns from Rebecca that George Osborne, 
just before the Battle of Waterloo, had urged her to elope with him. 
Amelia and Dobbin are married. Jos Sedley becomes completely sub- 
ject to Becky, lets her control all his money, and finally diea oadw nu> 
picious circumstances. Becky's son, Rawdon, eventually socceeda to 
the baronetcy, bat refuses to see hia mother, who is out by respectable

Though not iO) 'jumediate ( aqnel to Henry Emond, tiie Virginiana is 
a continuation rlirr novel, relating not, indeed, the further 

adventures of the Ck>lonel Esmond of Queen Anne's service, but those 
of hie grandsons, tiie Esmond Warrington twins, and continuing in a 
later generation the chronicle of the house of Castlewood. The theme 
of the story ia the different careers and fates of the twin brothers, so 
alike in appearance, so unlike in temperament and ability, who are forced 
by oiroomstances and their own natures to enlist on opposite sides in 
the American Revolution, though preserving unbroken their brothniy 
relations. The only main character from Henry Esmond, which holds 
over and reappears as a main character in the Virginvma idso, is Beatrix 
Esmond, -who reappears as the old, worid-haidened Baroness Bernstein. 

After his marriage to Ikuly Castlewood, Colonel Esmond settled at 
Castlewood, in Virginia. At his death his only child, Madam Rachel 
Esmond Warrington (who, after her hnBband's eaify deatii, caUa horself 
Madam Esmond) inherits his property, and rules despotically over her 
estate and her twin sons, George and Harry Warrington. George, the 
elder twin, is regarded as the heir to the estate. When he is still a lad 
his mother quarrels with him about money matters. The boys are at all 
times fast friends, and Harry, though his mother's favourite, loyally 
iiakes his brother's part when George and Madam Esmond clash. George 
grows jealous of his mothw's partiaUty for their neighbour, Major George 
Washington, and feus <iiat she meana to marry again. He forces Ifr. 
Washington into a duel, which fortnrat^ is interrupted. George and 
Mr. Wiishington join Braddook's expedition agains'^ the French. Brad- 
dock is defeated, and Gerrge is reported kilkd. Aftor a vain search 
for his brother, Harry falls ill, and on his recovery goes to England. 
Harry visits his relatives, Lord Castlewood and his family, at Castle- 
wood, in England, and becomes a special favourite of Ms aunt, the 
Baroness Bemstdn. He falls in love with his ooTisin, Lady Maria Es- 
mond, Itord Okstiewood's elderly sister. He accompanies his aunt and 
Lady Maria on their way to Tunbridge Wells, but before reaching his 
destination is tiirown from his horse, and is cared for by Colonel Lambert 
hbA his femity. On reooverii^; from his accident, Harry rejoins tiie 
Baroness and Lady Maria at Tunbridge Wells, where he leads a fashion- 
able life, wins money at cards, and soon gains a bad reputation as a fast 
young man. In the lueantiae he haa recovered fran im inia tii atio p for 
Lady Maria and legvels hk <fg i i i a — t to her. 


Hany s friends, the LambertB, come to Tnnbridge Wells, and Hetty 
Lambert discovers that she is in love with Harry, but ofiFends him by 
her wilfulness. The Baroness Bernstein tries to bribe Lady Maria to 
release Harry, bat fails. She then manages to gain possession of Harry's 
written promise to Maria, but Harry refuses to take advantage of this 
and remains faithful to his engagement. Harr^ now goes to £c:^on, 
where he spends money recklessly, is presented at Ooar», and makes tiie 
acquamtance of his uncle, Sir MUes Warrington. At first he wins money 
at cards and spends it freely ; but his luck turns, he loses aU his money, 
and 18 arrested for debt. Just as Colonel Lambert is sbont to come to 
Harry's assistance. George Warrington unexpectedly appears and pays 
his brother's debts. Harry is overjoyed to learn that, although reported 
dead after Braddock's defeat, George had been saved from death by a 
Frenchman whose acquaintance he had previously made in Canada, 
and, after having been kept prisons for a long lame, had managed to 
escape by bribing his jaUer. Harry, who is no longer the heir, loses favour 
with his relatives, and Lady Maria releases him from his engagement. 
Lady Maria later consoles herself by marrying Bfr. Hagan, tbe aotor. 
Mid is cast off by her family. Although treated generously by George, 
Harry is unhappy, and eventuaUy joins the army, goes on the expedition 
to the coast of France, and becomes an ensign in Kii^ley's regiment. 
George gams in popularity as Harry loses. He writes a tragedy which 
has some success at Covent Garden, Ho and Theo Lambert become en- 
gaged, with the consent of both families, although his mother is dis- 
appomted that he has not uliosen the rich heiress, Miss Lydia Van den 
Bosch, who evwituaUy marries Lord Cartlewood. Madam Etaumd later 
withdraw her consent, and the young people are separated for a time, 
but are finally married. When Madam Esmond learns of the marriage 
she stops George's aUowance. George's second play fails, and poTerty 
forces him to act as tutor to young Foker. By the death of Sir MUes 
Wanrngtim s only son, George becomes heir to his uncle's title and estates, 
and his days of poverty end. MeanwhUe Harry has gone with General 
Wolfe on the expedition against Canada, and takes part in the capture 
of Quebec. Later he selb his oommiasion. and with the proceeds, added 
to the money which the Baroness Bernstein leaves him on her death, he 
purchases an estate in Virginia. Having faUen in love with Fanny Moun- 
tarn, the daughter of his mother's companion, he marries her in oppod- 
toon to Madam Esmond's wishes. At the death of his uncle. Sir MUes, 
George succeeds to the Warrington title and estates in England. Through 
his wife's efforts he and his mother are reconcUed, and he and Theo visit 
Sladam Esmond in Virginia. At the outbreak of the American Revolu. 
turn Hany, inflnenoed by his wife and by his old friend, Washington.

Yellowpluh, Memdn ol Mr. 0. J. First printed in Fntu'M Magweuu, 
Nov., 1837-Aug., 1838 ; first edition in book form pubttdiad, aoo^- 
mously, by E. li. Carey A. Hart, Philadelphia, 1838. 
Mit$ Skim'9 Hiukmd. Soena : Londoa. Tima: drw 1818. 

Young Charles Yellowplush takes service with Mr. Frederick Altamont, 
a fashionable young man with a myBteriooa baaineaa in the City. Alta- 
mont lodges with the Shiuai and iiOb in love nitii pretty Maiy Shum, 
whtat ba aunfaa, wiliMai, Iwwafer, ei^iaiBii^t iHwk Us tmsiBssa is. 


Mary's jealous stepmother and stepsisters work upon her curiosity, and 
finally the awful fact comes to light that Mr. Altamont swept the crossing 
from the Bank to Gomhill. The Altamonts go abroad, and YeUowploah 
■eeka another master. 

Amours Mr. Deueeau. Seene : hamim, BoakMme, Farii. Time : 


Yellowplush's nt:it master is the Hon. Algernon Percy Deuceaoe, a 
yonng man of good family who keeps chambers in the Temple, though 
his real occupation is gambling. Mr. Blewett, a sporting man, and Mr. 
Dawkins, a rich young man from Oxford, have chambers near Mr. Deuce- 
ace. When Deuceaoe finds tiiat Blewett has enmeshed yx>ang Dawkins, 
he decides to take a hand in the game himself, and compels Mr. Blewett 
to join forces with him. When they have won nearly all of poor Dawkins's 
money Deuceace brazenly refuses to give Blewett his share of the spoils. 
After this incident, finding his debts a little pressing, Mr. Deuceace takes 
himself and his winnings to Paris, where he sets up as a man of fashion, 
allows it to be reported that he has an independent income, and iooks 
around for a rich wife. He makes the acquaintance of T tw d y GrifSn a nd 
Was Qriffin, and pajrs conrt to them impartially until he can be sore 
which of the two has the money. Unfortunately for himself, he has 
mad^ the mistake of refusing to share his winnings with his crafty old 
father, the Earl of Crabs, who, in revmge, discloses Deooeaoe's sohenM 
to Eady Griffin. To test Deuceace, Lady Griffin allows him to find out 
that the money is divided between herself and her stepdaughter, but 
conceals from him the fact that the latter will lose all if she marries with- 
out Lady Griffin's consent. Believing Miss Griffin to be an heiress, 
Deuceace proposes to her and is accepted. In revenge for the slight to 
herself. Lady Griffin leads him into a duel with a Frenchman, in which 
he is maimed for life, and then has him imprisoned for debt. He re- 
leases himself only by paying out all the money he has won from Daw- 
kins. He then marries Miss Griffin, only to £bd that, as Lady Griffin 
refused her consent, he and his wii'e are b^igats. His disappointment 
is aggravated by the fact that his sly old father marries lad^ Ghtiffin, 
who is now the possessor of both her own and her itepdaaghtcr'i mooegr. 

Yellotojdrtsh'a Ajew. 
Yellowplush's master, Sir John, gives a dinner to which the eminent 
literary men. Dr. Dioclesian Lamer and Ifistawedwad Lyttn Bolwig, are 
invited. Yellowplush disonsses literatore with th«n, and ends by leaving 
Sir John's service.

" Blanche was fair and like a 

■ylph She IimI fair hair with 
gr<Hi, n*H<-ctions in it. But she 
I id di»rk eyebnms. She had long 
hltM'k r y»'la4i* j<. which v('ilt>d beau- 
tiful broun . y. !.. She had such a 
sli' \\a,M, tha! it was a unnder 
t>> behold; and such slim little 
fcet, that yon would havi' thought 
the iira.'^s wf)uld hanlly In-nd under 
them. Her lips were of the colour 
of faint msebnds, uid her voice 
wurblcd lin)|iiilly ov« i a wf of the 
wHeetest iiulc jiearly teeth ever 
seen. She dMnred Mnm very 
r>' tot they werr very pretty. 
^ ! always nniiling, and a 

Kmile imi only nliowcd her teeth 
wonderfully, but Ukewiae exhibited 
two lovely little fUk dimplcH, 
that nestied in ebsdr." 
Ch. xxii. 

"... this young lady was not 
able to carry out any emotion to 
the full ; but had a sham enthu- 
siasm, a sham hatnd, a sham 
love, a sham taste, a sham grief, 
each of which flared and shone 
very vehemently for an instant, 
but subsided and gave place to 
the next Aam emotion." Ch. 

She cultivates her sentiments, 
writes poems which she keeps 
in a i K'ked volume called " Med 
Larmcs," and considers herself 
intellectually superior to the otiier 
members of her family, to whom 
she makes herself disagreeable. 
She is never happy except when 
she has made herself the centre of 
interest through some display of 
her banaty, olevemesa, poetic 



gifts or emotions. Having entered 
into a flirtation with Pendennis in 
the country she engages herself 
to him, dismisBing him later when 
the wealthy Harry Foker proposes 
to her. Craving excitement, she 
enters into a correspondence with 
her disreputable father Amory, 
alias Altamont, as soon as she 
learns of his presence in EIngland. 
After Foker breaks their engage- 
ment she marries a French noble- 
man of doubtful standing. 
Note. — It is generally admitted 
that the character of BUmohe 
Amory is drawn from life. 

Thackeray himself, in a letter 
to Mrs. Brookfield, says : 

" At the train whom do you 

think I found ? Miss G , who 

says she is Blanche Amory, and 
I think she is Blanche Amoiy, 
amiable at times, amusing, clever, 
and depraved. We talked and 
persiflated all the way to London, 
and the idea of her will help me 
to a good chapter, in which I will 
make Pendennis and Blanche 
play at being in love, such a 
wicked, false, humbugging London 
love, as two bkui London people 
might act, and half deceive them- 
selves that they were in earnest." 
Thackeray, £e^«— 1847-18S6, 
p. 49. 

- Li the original letter Miss G 

was a Miss Gore. 

Mrs. Carlyle also knew some one 
whom she regarded as an original 
of Blanche. {See Carlyle, Mrs.,

" My uncle was a man of sixty 
years of age, dressed superbly in 
a coat and breeches of apricot- 
coloured velvet, a white satin 
waistcoat embroidered with gold 
like the coat. Across his breast 
went the purple riband of his 
order of the Spur ; and the star 
of the order, an enormous one, 
sparkled on his breast. He had 
rings <m all his fingers, a couple of 
watches in his fobs, a rich diamond 
tditain in the bhwik riband round 
his neck, and fastened to the bag 
of his wig : his ruffles and frills 
were decorated with a profusion 
of the richest laoe. He had pink 
'•■'k stockings rolled over the knee, 
and tied with gold garters ; and 
enormous diamond buckles to his 
red - heeled shoes. A sword 
mounted in gold, in a white fish- 
skin scabbard ; and a hat richly 
laced, aitd lined with white f' \- 
thers, which were lying on a tablp ' 
bcri8khim,oomidefeed tiwoostas i 

of this splendid gentleman. In 
height he was about my size, that 
is, six feet and half an inch ; his 
cast of features singularly like 
mine, and extremely diatingui. 
One of his e5'e8 was closed with a 
black patch, however; he wore 
a little white and red paint, by no 
means an unusual ornament in 
tliose days ; and a pair of mous- 
taches, which fell over his Up and 
hid a mouth that I afterwards 
found had rather a disagreeable 
expression." Ch. vii. 

He pretends to have a small 
diplomatic appointment, under 
cover of which he goes from one 
Continental capital to another, 
running a faro bank and cheating 
at cards generally. He takes a 
fancy to Barry when he discovers 
their relationship, and makes him 
a partner and tool in his schemes. 
As a young man he had forfeited 
his small paternal estates in Ire- 
land through his loyalty to the 
Catholic rd^gion, and in his old 
age he retires to a convent.

" Of the hatf-dozen families that 
formed the congregation at Brady's 
Town, there was not a single per- 
son whose appearance was so re- 
spectable as that of the widow, 
who, though she always dressed 
in mourning, in memory of her 
deceased husband, took care that 
her garments should be made so 
as to set off her handsome person 
to the greatest advantage ; and, 
indeed, I think, spent six hours 
out of every day in the week in 
cutting, trimming, and altering 
them to the fashion. She had 
the largest of hoops and the hand- 
somest of furbelows Her com- 
plexion was so brilliant that she 
had no call to use rouge, as was 
the mode in those dajrs." Ch. I. 

She brings up her only son to 
be a thorough rascal. After 
Barry becomes a person of fashion 
she resents his airs of superiority 
but is proud of his rich marriage, 
though she later despises his 
feeble x^-ife. She manages his 
Irish property and triea to lock 




after him when he geto badly in 
debt, ami take* care of him after 
he is imprisoned in the Fleet.

" Mr. riL'derick Bayham made 
his appearance, arrayed in that 
peculiar costume which he af- 
fected. In those days we wore 
very tall stocks, only a very few 
poetic and eccentric persons ven- 
turing on the Bynm edlar ; but 
Fred Bayham confined his neck 
by a simple riband, which {>Jlowed 
his great red whiskers to curl 
freely round his capacious jowl. 
He wore a black frock and a large 
broad-brimmed hat, and looked 
somewhat like a Dissenting 
preacher. Ab other periods you 
would see him in a green coat and 
a blue neckcloth, as if the turf or 
the driving of coaches was his 
occupation." Ch. xii. 

" He can imitate any actor, 
tragic or comic ; any known Pu- 
Uamentary orator or clergyman, 
any saw, cock, cloop of a cork 
wrenched from a bottle and gug- 
gling of wine into the decanter 
afterwards, bee-buzdng, little boy 
up a chimney, etc. He imitates 
people being ill on board a steam- 
packet BO weU that he makes you 
die of laughing : his uncle the 
Bishop could not resipo his comic 
exhibition, and gave Fred a 
cheque for a comfortable sum 
of money; and Fred, getting 
cash for the cheque at the " Cave 
of Harmony," imitated his uncle 
the BdK^ and his Chaplain, wind- 
ing vep witJi his Locdship and 


Chaplain being unwell at sea — 
the Chaplain and Bishop quite 
natural and distinct." Ch. xi. 

F. B. is one of the ocmtributors

Note. — The character of Fred Bay- 
ham is said to have been 
sketched from the gifted but 
Bohemian ^^^am Ftootor 
Bolland, who, among other 
points of resemblance, had 
the habit of speaking of him- 
self as "William," just as 
Bayham calls himself " F.B."

" In action one of the bravest 
of men, in common life General 
Baynes was timorous and weak. 
Specially he was afraid of Mrs. 
Genmal Baynes, who ruled him 
with a vigcnoos anthonty. As 




Pliilip'g truHtco he had alluwcd 
Philip's father to make awny with 
the boy's money. He Jearmd 
with a ghuHtly terror that he was 
anflworable for liis own rcmiaancBS 
and want of care." Ch. zvi. 

"I don't think poor General 
Baynes ever !iad a proper sense of 
his situation, or knew how miser- 
able he ought by rights to have 
been. He was not uncheerful at 
times : a silent man, liking his 
rubber and his glass of wine ; a 
very weak person in the common 
affairs of life, as his best friends 
must own ; but, as I have heard, 
a very tiger in action." Ch. xx. 

Through his carelessness Philip's 
fortune is lost, and llie General 
and liis family flee to France. 
When naUp falls in love with 
his daughter Charlotte, General 
Baynes approves the engagement, 
but later allows his wife to break 
it off. His conscience reproaches 
him for this injustice, and when 
dying he turns against his wife 
and brings PhiUp and Charlotte 
tc^ther again.

temper ; a disagreeable person, 
attired in very bad taste ; a 
shrieking voice ; and two man- '

odious. Whra she ordered Baynes

She makes a hero of Philip, and 
is devotedly attached to him when 
they become engaged. When Mrs. 
Baynes attempts to break the 
engagement, Chariotte is faithful 
to Philip and defies her mother. 
Her father's share in the trouble 
she forgives, but is never reo(ni> 
ciled to her mother. She becomes 
a devoted but not always wise 
wife and mother, and is un- •

"There were nut many foun- 
tains in that desert of a Uf&— not 



many b./eet refreshing resting- 
places. It had been a long lone- 
liness, for the most part until this 
friendly voice came and soundec 
in her ears and caused her heart 
to beat with strange pangs of love 
and sympathy. She doted on this 
lad [Hany Warrington], and on 
this sense of compassion and re 
gard so now to her. Save once, 
faintly, in very very early youth, 
she had felt no tender sentiment 
for any human being. Such a 
woman would, no doubt, watch 
her own sensations very keenly, 
and must have smiled after the 
appearance of this boy, to mark 
how her pulses rose above their 
ordinary beat. She longed after 
him. Sh. felt her cheeks flush 
with happiness when he came near. 
Her eyes greeted him \ ith wel- 
come, and followed him with fond 
pleasure. * Ah, if she could have 
had a son like that, how she would 
have loved him ! ' ' Wait,' says 
Conscience, the 6aA scoffer mock- 
ing within her, 'wait, Beatrix 
Esmond ! You know you will 
weary of this inclination, as you 
have of all. You know, when the 
passing fancy has subsided, that 
the boy may iwrish, and you 
won't have a tear for him ; or 
talk, and you weary of his stories ; 
and that your lot in life is to be 
lonely— lonely.' " Ch. xiv. 

Though she retains no traces of 
her former great beauty, she is 
still brilliant and lively, and pos- 
sesses a malicious wit and a sense 
of humour. When her nephew 
Harry Esmond Warrington comes 
to England, she takes a great 
ianoy to him heenm <4 his ie< 

W m 

semblance to his grandfather, 
Colonel Esmond, of whom she had 
been fond when she was the young 
and beautiful Beatrix Esmond. 
When Harry's brother, George, 
comes to England she transfers 
her affections to him because he 
resembles Colonel Esmond even 
more than Harry does. She clings 
to her cards and lively stories 
until she dies, wandering in mind 
and talking of her early days.

lence, long-suffering, seclusion will 

sometimes give She was tidy, 

thrifty, gay at times, with a little 
nmide oheetfulmss. Hie Httie

and a kind heart, that has been 
sorely tried and wounded, but is 
still soft and gentle." Ch. vi.

mistdce, bat is nseoed at the last 
minute by AngeHca, who now 
appears lovely in Bulbo's eyes, as 
she has gained possession of his 
magic KOSE. Bulbo and Angelica 
are married, and after Prince 
Giglio comes to power, Bulbo is 
held as a hostage for the safety of 
Rosalba, who is in King Pfcdella's 
power, and is again ordered off to 
execution and again saved, but 
this time by Rosalba's escape. 
Eventually things settle down 
and Bulbo and Angelica live 
happily, a handsome couple, now 
that Angelica has the magic boss

Giglio gives him.

to Thackeray by his own ex-

an unlucky investment in an 
Indian bank that failed. (See

BuNOAT, Mb. Publisher of the PoS 

Mall Gazette. Formerly of the

xxxi-xxxiv, xli, Iviii. 

" Bungay and Bacon are at 
daggers drawn ; each married the 
sister of the other, and they were 
for some time the closest friends 
and partners. Hack sajm it was 
Mrs. Bungay who caused all the 
mischief between the two ; where- 
as Shuidon, who reads for Bungay 
a' good deal, says that Mrs. Bacon 
did the business. . . . Since they 
have separated, it is a furious war 
between the two publishers ; and 
no sooner does one bring out a 
book of travels, or poems, b maga- 
zine or periodical, quarterly, or 
monthly, or weekly, or annual, 
but the rival is in the field with 
something similar. I have heard 
poor Shandon tell with great glee 
how he made Bungay give a grand 
dinner at Blackwall to all his 
writers, by saying that Bacon had 
invited his corps to an entertain- 
ment at Greenwich. When Bun- 
gav engaged your celebrated friend 
Mr. Wagg to edit the Londoner, 
Bac(Mi straightway rushed off and 
secured Mr. GrincOe to give his 




name to the We^mituter Maga- 
nuc. When Baom broaght oat hiR 

comic Irish novel of ' Barney Bral- 
lagan ' off went Bungay to Dublin, 
•nd produced his rollicking Hibor- 
niu atory of < Looney Mao Twol- 
la.' When Dr. Hicks brought out 
bis * Wanderings in Mesopotamia ' 
under Bacon's auspices, Bungay 
prodnoed Professor fondiman's 
* Researches in Zahara ' ; and Bun- 
gay is publishing his PaU MaU 
Oazttte as a counterpoise to Ba- 
con's Whitehall Review." Ch. xxxi. 
Note. — Thackeray's sketch of Mr. 
Bungay is said to be a cari- 
cature of Henry Colbum the 
publisher. (See WhibUy, p.

"So kng. tim, m the -muM 


moved according to Lord Caatle-

naturally sprightly and easy, liking 
to joke, espedi^y with his in- 
feriors, and charmed to receive 
the tribute of their laughter. All 
exercises of the body he could per- 
form to perfection — shooting at a 
mark and flying, breaking horses, 
riding at the ring, pitching the 
quoit, paying at all games with 
great skiD . . . 

" He was fond of the parade of 
dress, and passed as many hours 
daily at his toilet as an elderly 
coquette. A tenth part of his day 
was ppent in the brushing of his 
teeth, and the oiling of his hair, 
which was curling and brown, and 
which he did not Uke to conceal 
under a periwig, such as almost 
everybody of that time wore."

" His presence brought sun- 
shine into a room, his Isngh, his 
prattle, his noble beauty and 
brightness of look, cheered and 
charmed indescribably. At the 
least tale of sorrow, his hands were 
in his purse, and he was eager with 
sympathy and bounty. The way 
in which women loved and petted 
him, when, a year or two after- 
wards, he came upon the world, 
yet a mere boy, and the foUies 
which they did for him (as indeed 
he for them), recalled the career 
of Rochester, and outdid th^ 
successes of Grammcmt. His very 
creditors loved him; and the 
hardest usurers, and some of the 
rigid prudes of the other sex, too, 
could deny him nothing. He was j 
no more witty than another man, 
but what he said, he said ant 
looked as no man else could say 
or look it. I have seen the women 
at the comedy at Bruxelles crowc 
round him in the lobby ; and as 
he sat on the stage more people 
looked at him than at the actors, 
and watched him ; and I re- 
member at Bamillies, when he was 
hit and fell, a great big red-haired 
Scotch sergeant flung his halbert 
down, burst out a-crying like a 
woman, seiang him up as if he 
had been an infant, and carrying 
him oat ci the fire." Bk. 2, 

When his father is killed by 
Lord Mohun, Frank is still a boy 
and succeeds to the title and 
estates in igncmuiee of the foct 
that they are rightfully Henry

young, marries Mile. Clotilda de

who converts him to her faith and 
rules him. Always devoted to 
Henry Esmond, he is overwhelmed 
with gratitude when he learns Hbtkt 
Henry has renounced his claims in 
his favour. He helps him to bring 
the Pretender to England, and 
later follows Henry's lead in re- 
nouncing him.

" A blackamoor in a Turkish 
habit, with red boots and a silver 
collar, <m whkh the inseomitess's 
arms were engraven, preceded her 
and bore her cushion ; then came 
her gentlewoman ; a little pack of 
spaniels, barking and frisking 
about, preceded the austere hunt- 
ress — then, behold, the Viscoun- 
tess herself 'dropping odours.' 
Esmond recollected from his child- 
hood that rich aroma of musk 
which his mother-in-law (for she 
may be called so) exhaled. As the 
sky grows redder and redder to- 
wards sunset, so, in the decline of

set it off. She wore the ringlets 
which had been in fashion in King 
Charles's time. . . . Her eyes 
gleamed out from amidst of 
tioB queer structure of paint, 
dyes, and pomatums." Bk. 2, iii. 

" To the last days of h. r life, 
my Lady Viscountess had the 
comfort of fancying herself beauti- 
ful, and persisted in blooming up 
to the very midst of winter, paint- 
ing roses on her cheeks long after 
their natural seasor, and attiring 
herself like summer though her 
head was covered with snow." 
Bk. 1, ii. 

She had sacrificed, not only her 
money, but also her reputation to 
King James IT, and to the end 
of her life remains loyal to the 
Stuarts. In middle age rfie mar- 
ried her cousin, Thomas Esmond. 
Though she is generous and loyal, 
she has an imperious temper and 
often makes herself ridiculous. 
After the death of her husband 
she is kind to Henry Esmond, his 
son, and leaves him her little

"The new and fair Lady of 
Castlewood found the sad, lonely, 
little occupant of this gallery busy 
over his great book, which he laid 
down when he was aware that a 
stranger was at liand. . . . 

" She stretched out her hand- 
indeed, when was it that that 
hand would not stretch out to do 
an act of kindness, or to protect 
grief and ill-fortune ? * And this 
is our kinsman,' she said ; * and 
what is your name, kinsman ? ' 

'"My name is Henry Esmond,' 
said the lad, looking up at her in a 
. sort of delight and wonder, for she 
had come upon him as a Dea certi, 
and appeared the most charming 
object he had ever looked on. 
Her golden hair was shining in the 
gold of the sun ; her complexion 
was of a dazzlirg bloom ; her lips 
smiling, and her eyes beaming 
with a kindness which made Harry 
Esmond's heart to beat with sur- 
prise." Bk. 1, i. 

" And as Esmond has taken 
truth for his motto, it must be 
owned, even with regard to that 
other angel, his mistress, that she 
had a fault of character which 
flawed her perfections. With the 
other POX perfectly tolerant and 
kindly, of her own she was in- 
variably jeabus ; anda^oof that 

■he had this vice is, that though 
•he would acknowledge a thousand 
faalta that she had not, to this 
which she had she could never be 
got to own. But if there came a 
woman with even a semblance of 
beauty to Castlewood, she was so 
sure to find out some wrong in her, 
that my Lord, laughing in his jolly 
way, would often joke with her 
concerning her foible. Comely 
servant-maids might come for hire, 
but none were taken at Castle' 
wood. The housekeeper was old ; 
my Lady's own waiting- woman 
squinted, and was marked with 
the smallpox; the housemaids 
and scullion were ordinary country 
wenches, to whom Lady Castle 
wood was kind, as her nature 
made her to everybody almost; 
bu; as soon as ever she had to do 
with a pretty woman, she was cold, 
retiring, and haughty." Bk. 1, vii 

Possessed of great beauty and a 
good mind, she finds herself, at an 

early age, married to a man whose 
inferiority she discovers after a 
few years of happy married Ufe. 
She is devoted to her two children, 
particularly to Frank, but in-' 
dulges them greatly, and there is 
always a lack of sympathy be- 
tween her and Beatrix, because of 
the daughter's worldliness and the 
mother's jealousy. She is good to 
Henr3' Esmond from the time 
when she first comes to Castle- 
wood, and grows very fond of him. 
At the time of her husband's 
death she breaks with Henry, but 
they are soon reconciled. Al- 
though she loves Henry, she tries 
to advance his suit with Beatrix, 
but, after her daughter's flight, 

she marries him, though his senior 

by seven or eight years.

" Thomas had served with the 
Emperor, and with the Dutch, 
when King Charies was compelled 
to lend troops to the States, and 
against them, when his Majesty 
made an alliance with the French 
King. In these campaigns Thomas 
Esmond was more remarked for 
duelling, brawling, vice, and play, 
than for any conspicuous gallantry 
in the field, and came back to 
England . . , with a character by 
no means improved by his foreign 
experience. He had dissipated his 
small paternal inheritance of a 
younger brother's portion, and, as 
truth must be told, was no better 
than a hanger-on of ord.taries, 
and a brawler about Alsatia and 
the Friars." Bk. 1, ii. 

After having secretly married 
Henry's mother and deserted her, 
he married his cousin Isabel, to 
retrieve his fortune. Although, 
after the death of their son, he had' 
brought Henry Esmond to Castle- 
wood, he does not acknowledge 
him. He is killed, fighting for 
King James, at the Battle of 
the Boyne.

The estate originally belonged 
to the English branch of the 
family, but was transferred by 
the 5th Viscoont to Col. Esmond 
when the latter married Lady 
Castlewood. From Col. Esmond 
the estate descended to his daugh- 
ter (Madame Esmond). After 
Madame Esmond's title-deeds are 
burned, during the Revolution, 
the Earl of Castlewood makes an 
attempt to regain the e«t»te, bat 
is frustrated by the diBCoreiy of

from "Evans's," in Covent

in Thackeray's time for its 
suppers and music. Anothw 
similar resort, the "Coal 
Hole," is sometimes claimed 
as the prototype of the " Cave 
of Harmony," though witL 
less authority, and it is pos 
sible that Thackeray may 
have had both places in mind.

She had been unhappy with her

and mi receiving mws of his death 
had married Sir Francis Clavering. 
Her second husband squanders 
her money and she is no happier 
with him than she had been with 
Amory, although she is dotingly 
fcHid of their son, and for his srke 

(Miys her husbond's debts again 
and again. Her distiess is great 
when she learns Uial AsMty to nol 
dead, and her relief is correspond- 
ingly great when she finds that he 
had been previously married and 
that her marriage to Sir Vtancto 
is regular.

" Clavering was a man who had 
never looked his debts fairly in the 
face, familiar as he had been with 
them all his life : as long as he 
couM renew a bill, Ms mind was 
easy regarding it ; and he would 
sign almost anything for to- 
morrow, provided to-day could be 
left unmolested. He was a man 
whom scarcely any amount of 
fortune could have benefited per- 
manently, and who was made to 
be ruimd, to cheat small trades* 
men, to be the victim of astuter 
sharpers : to be niggardly and 
reckless, and as destitute of 
honesty as the people who cheated 
him, and a dupe, chiefly because 
he was too mean to be a successful 
knave. He had told more lies in 
his time, and undergone more 
baseness of stratagem in order to 
stave off a small debt, or to swindle 
a poor creditor, than would have 
sufficed to make a fortune for a 
braver rogue. He was abject and 
a shufBer in the very he^t of hto 


proHpcrity. Had he been a Crf " n 
Prince he could nut hare L>uen 
mora weak, uaeleM, diMohrte or 
tingntcful. He could not move 
through life except leaning on the 
arm of aomebody ; and yet he 
never had an agent hat be mk 
tnieted him; and marred any 
plans that might be arranged for 
hia berefit, by aeoretly acting 
agafo't, the peoirie whom he em* 
iJoycd." Ch. xliii. 

He married the rich widoA', Mrs. 
Amory, for her money, and when 
he learns that her former husband 
is st<U living, he is willing to sub- 
mit to blackmail in order to keep 
her in ignorance of the fact, and 
to save tor himself the enjoyment 
of her fortune.

" The Captain was inclined to 
be bald, but he brought a quantity 
of lank iron-grey hair over his

of the same falling down on each 
side of his face. Much whiskey 
has spoiled what complexion Mr. 
Costigan may have possessed in 
his youth. His once handsome 
face had now a copper tinge. He 
wore a very high stock, scarred 
and stained in many places ; and 
a dress-coat tightly buttoned up 




in those parts wbere the buttons 
had not parted otmipany from the 
garment. . . .'* 

" He began life rather brilluHitly 
with a pair of colours, a fine person 
and legs, and one ot the most 
beautiful voices in the world. To 
his latest day he sang, with ad 
mirable pathos and humour, those 
wonderful Irish ballads which are 
so mirthful and so melancholy : 
and was always the first himself 
to ciy at their pathos. Poor Cos! 
he was at <moe braTe and maudlin, 
humorous and an idiot ; always 
good-natured, and sometimes al- 
most trustworthy. Up to the last 
day of his life he would drink with 
any man, and back any man's 
bill : and his end was in a spung- 
ing-house, wbere the sheriff's 
officer vfho took him, waa f<md of 
him." Pendennis, v. 

In PeHdeninit he raconrages his 
daughter to accept Pendennis's 
addresses until he learns from the 
Major that the boy is not wealthy, 
when the engagemoat is broken. 
He leads a happy, tipsy life, living 
on his daughter's earnings and on 
a pension which she allows him 
after she marries. 

In Neweomea he is a frequenter 
of the " Gave of Hannony," and 
singa a questionable song, which 
causes Colonel Newcome to leave 
the room in indignatitm. 
^o<e.— Several originals for the 
character of Captain Costigan 
have been suggested by vari- 
ous authorities. In particu- 
lar, D^^lliam John O'Connell, 
and O'Neill, the father of 
Miss Eliza O'Neill the actress, 
have be«i claimed as proto- 

types. But we have Thack- 
eray's own words for it that 
he did not meet Captain 
Costigan in the flesh until 
years after Pendennia waa 

" In the novel of ' Pendennia/ 
written ten jrean ago, there is an 
aocoont of a certain Costigan, 
whom I had invented (as I sup- 
pose authors invent their per- 
sonages out 61 scraps, heel-taps, 
odds and ends of characters). I 
was smoking in a tavern parlour 
one night — and this Costigan came 
into the room alive — the very 
man : — ^the most remarkable re- 
semblance of the printed sketches 
of the man, of the rude drawings 
in idiieh I had depicted him. He 
had the same little coat, the same 
battered hat, cocked on one eye, 
the same twmUe in tiiat ejw. 
' Sir,' said I, knowing him to be 
an old friend whom I had met in 
unknown regions, 'sir,' I said, 
' may I offer you a glass of brandy 
and water T' * Bedad ye may,' 
says he, * and Vtt sing ye a aomg 
to.' Of course he spoke with an 
IrUi brogue. Of eoone he bad 
been in the army. In ten minutes 
he pulled out an Army Agent's 
account, whereon his name waa 
written. A few months after we 
read of him in a police court. 
How had I come to know him, 
to divine him T Nothing shall 
ccmvinoe me that I have not seen 
that man in the world of spirits."

"The Reverend Bute Crawley 
was a tall, stately, jolly, shovel- 
hatted man, far more popular in 
his county than the Baronet his 
brother. At college he pulled 
stroke-oar in the Christchurch 
boat, and had thrashed all the 
best bruisers of the ' town.' He 
carried his taste for boxing and 
athletic exercises into private life ; 
there was not a fight within twenty 
miles at which he was not present, 
nor a race, nor a coursing match, 
nor a regatta, nor a ball, nor an 
election, nor a visitation dinner, 
noi indeed a good dinner in the 
whole county, but he found means 
to attend it. You might see his 
bay-mare and gig-lamps a score 
of miles away from his Rectory 
House, whenever there was any 
dinner-party at Fuddlestone, or 
at Roxby, or at Wapshot Hall, or 
at the great lords of the county, 
with all of whom he was intimate. 
He had a fine voice ; sang ' A 
southerly wind and a cloudy sky ' ; 
and gave the ' whoop ' in chorus 

with general applause. He rode to 
hounds in a pepper-and-salt frock, 
and was one of the best fishermen 
in the county." Ch. xi.

Mrs. Bute is cleverer '!'.an her

" Old Miss Crawley was cer- 
tainly one of the reprobate. Sue 
had a snug Uttle house u Park 
Lane, and, as she ate and drank 
a great deal too much during the 
season in London, she went to 
Hairowgate or Cheltenham for 
the summer. She was the most 
hospitable and jovial of old vestals, 
and had been a beauty in her day, 
she said . . . She was a hd esprit, 
and a dreadful Radical for those 
days. She had been in France 
(where St. Just, they say, inspired 
iier with an unfortunate passion), 
and loved, ever after, French 
novels, French cookery, and 
French wines. She read Voltaire, 
end had Rousseau by heart ; uid 
talked very lightly about divorce, 
and most energetically of the 
rights of women. She had pictures 
of Mr. Fox in every room in the 
house : when that statesman was 
in opposition, I am not sure that 
she had not flung a main with him; 
and when he came into oflSce, she 
took great credit for bringing over 
to him Sir Pitt and his coUt igue of

" Mr. Pitt took after the noble 
Binkies, from whom he was de- 
scended, and was a very polite and 
proper gentleman. When he grew 
to man's estate, and came back 
from Christ-church, he began to 
reform the slackened discipline of 
the hall, in spite of his father, who 
stood in awe of him. He was a 
man of such rigid refinement, that 
he wouW have starved rather than 
have dioed without a white neck- 


cloth. Once, when just from 
college, and when Horrooka the 
butler brought him a letter with- 
out placing it previously on a 
tray, he gave that domeatio a 
look, and administered to him a 
speech ao cutting, that Horrocks 
fiver after trembled before him ; 
the whole household bowed to 
him ,; Lady Crawley's curl-papere 
came off earlier when he was 
home : Sir Pitt's muddy gaiters 
disappeared; and if that in- 
corrigible ohl man still adhered 
to other old habits, he never 
fuddled himself with rum-and- 
water in hia aon'a preaence, and 
only talked to his servants in a 
very reserved and polite maniMr ; 
and those persons remarked that 
Sir Pitt never swore at Lady 
Crawley while his son was in the 
room. ... At Eton he waa called 
Miss Crawley ; and there, I am 
sorry to say, his younger brother 
Rawdon used to lick him viotontJy. 
But though hia parts were not 
brilliant, he made up for his lack 
of talent by meritorious industry, 
and was never known, during 
eight years at school, to be aub- 
ject to that punishment which it 
is generally thought none but a 

cherub can escape But thou^ 

he had a fine flux of words, and 
delivered his little voice with gi«at 
pomposity and pkaaure to him- 
self, and never advanced any 
sentiment or opinion which was 
not perfectly trite and stale, and 
supported by a Latin quotation ; 
yet he failed somehow, in spite of 
a mediocrity which ought to have 
ensured any man a succeea."

Crawley's momy, and at her

he succeeds his father he asserts 
himself as a pompous head of the 
family, restores the estate, and 
provides thriftily for his relatives. 
He has political ambitions, and 
Becky Sharp wheedles and man- 
ages him as she does eTMjrone else. 
When Rawdon leaves Becky it is 
only Lady Jane's jealousy and 
determination which keep Pitt

" A man in drab breeches and

" If mere parsimony could have 
made a man rich, ffir Pitt Crawley 
might have become v«y wealthy— 
if he had been an attorney in a 
country town, with no capital but 
his brains, it is veiy poenble that 
he would have tamed them to 
good account, and might have 
achieved for himself a veiy cou- 
siderable influence and compe- 
tency. But he was unluckily en- 
dowed with a good name and a 
large though encumbered estate, 
both of which weat rather to in- 

jure than to advance him. He had 
• taste for law, which cost him 

many thousands yearly; and 
being a great deal too clever to be 
robbed, as he said, by any siii|^ 
agent, allowed his affairs to be 
mismanaged by a dozen, whom 
he all equally mistrusted. He was 
such a sharp landlord, that he 
could hardly find any but bank- 
rupt tenants ; and such a close 
farmer, as to grudge almost the 
•Bed to the ground, idiereupon. 
revengeful Nature grudged him 
the crops which she granted to 
more liberal husbandmen. He 
speculated in every possible way. 
• . . In disposition he was sociable, 
and far bom being ptoad ; nay, 
he rather preferred the society of 
a farmer or a horse-dealer to that 
of a gentleman, like my lord, his 
■on : he was fond of drink, 
swearing, of joking with the 
farmers' daughters : he was neTBT 
known to give away a shilling or 
to do a good action, bat was of a 
pleasant, sly, laughing mood, and 
would out his joke uid drink his

baronetage, peerage, commonage 
of England, did not contain a more 
cunning, mean, selfish, foolish, dis- 
reputable old man ... a man 
who could not spell, and did not 
care to read— who had the habits 
and the cunning of a boor : whose

He neglects his wife, grudges 
the money to educate his daugh- 
tefs, makes Mends with his ser-

love of litigation. 

Becky Sharp, when governess 
to his daughters, acquires such 
an ascendancy over Sir Pitt that, 
after his second wife dies, he asks 
her to marry him. After her re- 
fusal he sinks still lower, allows 
himself to be dominated by his 
butler's daughter, drives his re- 
latives from him, and is shunned 
by all his respectable neighbours. 
Before his death he sinks into a 
state of imbecility. 
Note. — According to the well 
knowTi quotation from Kings 
ley. Sir Pitt Crawley had his 
prototype in real life. "That 
character is almost the only 
exact portrait in the whole

author as saying. It has 
been said that Lord RoUe of 
Stevenstone was the original, 
but nothing seems to be

"A perfeot and celebrated

was this young officer. Boxing,

four-in-hand driving were then 
the fashion of our British aris-

all these noble sciences. And 
though he belonged to the house-

valour in foreign service yet, 
Rawdon Crawley had aheady 
(dpropoe of play, of whkh he was

of many affairs of gallantry, he is 
so fascinated by Becky Sharp 
that he marries her recklessly, 
although by eo doing he loses his

for Becky, unworthy though she 
is, and his love for his httle boy, 
gradually work a tranafcmni^ian

no sort of character, nor talents, 
nor opinions, nor occupations, 
nor amusements, nor that vigour

Amours of Mr. Deuceace, 
m which his adventures are re- 
lated, Mr. Deuoea«e joins with Mr. 



Blewett, his neighbour in the 
Temple, to fleece the rich young 
Dawkins, and when he has won 
£4,700 from the latter refuses 
to share with Blewett, and de- 
parts hastily for Paris, where 
he lives in style and looks out for 
a rich wife. He pays court im- 
partially to Lady Griffin and her 
stepdaughter Matilda, and then 
proposes to Matilda when hej 
thinks the money is hers. He has 
incurred his father's enmity by 
refusing to share Dawkins's money 
with him, and the ol.. Eari of 
Crabs joins with the slighted Lady 
Griffin to conceal from Mr. Deuce- 
ace the fact that Matilda has no 
money if she marries without 
her stepmother's consent. Lady 
Griffin refuses her consent, and 
Deuceaoe, after having exhausted 
his own money and lost a hand in 
a duel, marries Matilda, only to 
find himself and his wife both 

The name Deuceace occurs fre- 
quently throughout Thackeray's 
novels and stories. Though several 
individuals bear the name the 
type, the blackleg of good family, 
18 always the same. As there is 
only one story. The Amours of 
Mr. Deuceace, in which Deuceace 
appears as a main character, it is 
impossible to be sure just how 
many different individuals Thack- 
eray had in mind in his frequent 
introduction of the name. Though 
the first name is often omitted, 
and there is some sli^t dis- 
crepancy in dates, it seems 
fairly certain that the Hon. 
Algernon Percy Deuceace of Am- 
t*c^ and Mif €k»tul 

Story, Algernon Deuceace of the 
Saveiuwing, and the Hon. Mr. 
Deuceaoe of Vanity Fair, Pen- 
dennia, and Captain Book are in- 
tended to be the same pencm. 
Other individuals of the same 
surname and propensities may 
be relatives who have the family 
failing. We are told that Mr. 
Deuceaoe was one of a laige 

^o<e.— The character of Mr.Deuoe- 

ace had its grim original in 
Tliackeray's own experience. 
Sir Theodore Martin relates 
that when he and Thackeray 
were once at Spa Thackeray 
pointt-d out to liim a soody- 
looking gambler, with the 
remark, "That was the 
original of my Deuceace," 
and then went on to tell 
how this man and a com- 
panion, knowing that Thack- 
eray would have money when 
he came of age, had once led 
him on to play 6cart* and 
fleeced him of £1,600. {8u

"• • .a very tall ungainly 
gentleman, with large hands and 
feet and large ears, set off by a 
closely - cropped head of black 
hair, and in the ludeous military 




frogged coat and cocked hat of 
those times." Ch. v. 

"He had very Imig legs, a 
yellow face, and a slight lisp, 
which at first was rather ridicu- 
lous. But his thoughts were just, 
his brains were fairly good, his 
life was honest and pure, and his 
heart warm and humble. He 
certainly had very large hands and 
feet, which the two George Os- 
bomes used to caricatuie and 
laugh at." Ch. Ixii. 

\Vlien only a gawky schoolboy 
he had formed an admiring friend- 
ship for the showy George Os- 
borne, his schoolmate, which lasts 
until the latter's death. Tender- 
hearted and gentle himself, Dobbin 
falls in love with George's fiancee, 
Amelia, but unselfishly suppresses 
his passion, and, when he sees 
how Amelia's happiness depends 
on the marriage, keeps George to 
his engagement and tries to re- 
form his faults. After George's 
death at Waterloo,Dobbin watches 
over Amelia and her child, to 
whom he is guardian. For years 
he remains faithful to his passion 
for Amelia, although she rejects 
his proposal, but finally, after 
being treated unreasonably by her, 
he breaks away. Eventually he 
and Amelia are married.

"'Pendennis, sir,'" he said, 
your idleness is incorrigible, and 
your stupidity beyond example. 
You are a disg^race to your school, 
and to your family, and I have 
no doubt will prove so in after 
life to your country. If that vice, 
sir, which is described to us as the 
root of all evil, be really what 
moralists have represented (and 
I have no doubt of the correctnrsss 
of their opinion), for what a pro- 
digious quantity of future crime 



and wickedness are you, unhappy 
boy, laying the seed. ... A boy, 
"ir, who docs ot leam his Greek 
play cheats the parent who spends 
money for his education. A boy 
who cheats his parent is not very 
far from robbing or forging upon 

n la VIA* nil A__ • s 

his neiglibour. A man who forger 
on his neighbour pays tlie penalty 
of his crime at the gallows. And 
it is not such a one that I pity 
(for lie will be deservedly cut off) ; 
but his maddened and heart- 
broken parents, who are driven 
to a premature grave by his 
crimes, or, if they live, drag on a 
wretched and dishonoured old 
age. Go on, sir, and I warn you 
that the very next mistake that 
you make shall subject you to the 
punishment of the rod.'" Ch. ii.

Duval, Dinis. Hero and narrator 
of the unfinished story Dmit 
Duval. D. Duv. i-viii. 

His boyhood is passed in Win- 
rhelsea, where he is the devotee 
attendant of little Agnes de 
Saveme, learns his grandfather's 
trade of pemiquier, and is in- 
volved in some of the old man's 
smuggling opemtifHui. While on 
a trip to London with Dr. Bar- 
nard, Denis discharges his Uttle 
pistol in the face of a highwayman 
who tries to rob the party, and on 
his return to Winchelsea finds he 
has somehow incurred the enmity 
of Mr. Joseph Weaton, who was 
mysteriously shot in the face on 
the same day that the highway 
robbery was attempted. His 
enemies tramp up a chaige of 
theft against him, and his life is 
threatened several times. He is 
knocked down and carried off by 
s iHeogang, but is recognized and 
saved by Capt. Pearson. After 
this, seeing that his life is not 
safe in Winchelsea, Denis's friends 
plan to get him into the navy as 
a midshipman, and when the 
story breaks off he is a volunteer 
on board the Betvpi* just before 
Capt. Pearson mgagM wiUi John 
Paul Jones.

He is a French Protestant

and elder of the French church. 
His church office does not, how- 
ever, keeij him from engaging 
actively in the mn g giip g bwdniMS, 

which he finds considerably more 
profitable than hk legidar trade. 

At first he involves his grandson 
in his smuggling operations, but 
desists after Dr. Barnard inter- 
feres in the boy's behalf. Though 
miserly, hn is a man of consider- 
able wealth, which he is to lose 
at a later date — ^probably through 
Denis's instnunentality after tlie 
boy has beecHOM an offloer in the

Duval's mother. D. Duv. i-viii. 

"A violent woman was my 
mother, jealous, hot, and domi- 
neering, but generous and know- 
ing how to forgive. I fancy my 
papa gave her too many oppor- 
tunities for exercising this virtue. 
. . . She had a grenadier height 
and voice, and a pretty smart 
pair of black whiskers too." Ch. i. 

She b an Almtian by Urth, and 
passionately attached to her foster- 
sister, the Comtesse de Saveme. 
When the Coimtess &es from her 
husband, Mrs. Duval receives her 
and nurses her faithfully till her 
death. She rules her father-in- 
law, Peter Duval, whose trades of 
hairdressing and smuggling she 
also follows, and is fond of her 
only son Denis. She fits Denis

and patrons procure him a chance 
of becoming a midshipman in the

but her complexion was as dai>

were of a still deeper crimson. Her

Although not blind to her 
faults, Henry Esmond loves her 
devotedly for years, but she is 
ambitious for a marriage which 
wiU give her great position. While 
maid'Of-honour at the Court she 
receives much attention, but fails 
to make a suitable marriage. The 
youthful Marquis of Blandford 
admires her ; later she is en- 
gaged to Lord Ashbumham, who, 
however, wearies of her exactions. 
Still later, when all arrangements 
have been made for her marriage 
to the Duke of Hamilton, the Duke 
is killed in a duel. When the Pre- 
tender comes to Ehgland Beatrix 
uses all her powers of fascination 
on him, and when her brother 
Frank and Henry Esmond inter- 
fere to protect her, she leaves all 
to follow the Prince to Prance. 
Many years after she returns to 
England and marries Tom Tusher.

Esmond, both as she appears 
in Benrjf Samtmd, and later, j 


as the Baroness Bemstvin in 
the Viffimians, is r id to hsv*

He is brought up at Caatlewood, 
but is generally regarded as illc- 
gitimatc, and when ho is a lad of 
twelve his father dies without 
acknowledging him. At this time, 
when he is still a timid and affec- 
ticmate child, fond of his books, 
he finds kind protectors in the 
new Lofd and Lady CSastlewood, 
and his feeling for this family, 
pariieniarly for Lady CastlewwKi, 
becomes a passionate drvotion, 
which is to influence his whole 
life. Through Lady Castlewood's 
efforts ho is sent to Cambridge, 
where his extreme senaitireneas 
about hia birth somewhat em 
bitters his college days. When 
Lord Castlewood, upon his death- 
bed, tells him that the title and 
estates rightfully belong to him 
Henry renounces his claim to 
these out, of gratitude and affec- 
tion for his patron and his family. 
Made ambitions by his love for 
the beautiful Beatrix Esmond (his 
patron's daughter), he distin- 
guishes himself in the wan of the 
time, becomes colonel, and later 
Msooiatesi^ith the wits of the 
day and dabbles in Hteratore.

Esmond, Lady Masu. Sister of 
Eugene, Earl of Osstlewood. A 

lady, no longer youthful, with 
whom Harry Warrington falls in 
love when he first comes to Eng-

" Who can say how old Lady 
Maria Esmond was? Books of 
the Peerage wotb not so many in 
those days as they are in our 
blessed times, and I cannot tell 
to a few years, or even a lustre or 
two. When Will used to say she 
was fiTeHtnd-thirty, he was abu- 




sive. . . . Lady Maria looked any 
age you liked. She was a fair 
beauty with a dazzling white and 
red complexion, an abundance of 
fair hair which flowed over her 
shoulders, and beautiful round 
arms which showed to uncommon 
advantage when she played at 
billiards with Cousin Harry. When 
she had to stretch across the table 
to make a stroke, that youth 
caught glimpses of a little ankle, 
a little clocked stocking, and i 
little black satin slipper with a 
little red heel, which filled him 
with unutterable rapture, and 
made him swear that there never 
was such a foot, ankle, clocked 
stocking, satin slipper in the 
world." Ch. xvi. 

The Baroness Bernstein, know- 
ing Lady Maria's age and past 
adventures, offers her money if 
she will release Harry ; but she 
refuses, although his fondness for 
her is past, and holds him to his 
promise until convinced of his 
poverty. Later she m^ets Mr. 
Hagan, the actor, marries liim, 
and, after being disowned by her 
family, settles in America with her

"She was scrupulous in her 
devotions, good to the poor, never 
knowingly did anybody a WTong. 
Yonder I fancy her enthroned in 
her principality of Castlewood, 
the country gentlefolks paying her 
court, the sons dutiful to her, the 
domestics tumbling over each 
other's black heels to do her bid- 
ding, the poor whites grateful for 
her bounty and implicitly taking 
her doses when they were ill, the 
smaller gentry always acquiescing 
in her remarks, and forever letting 
her win at backgammon — ^well, 
with all these benefits, which are 
more sure than fat« allots to most 
mortals, I don't think the little 
Princess Pocahontas, as she was 
called, was to be envied in the 
midst of her dominions. The 
Princess's husband, who was cut 
off in early life, was as well perhaps 
out of the way. Had he survived 
his marriage by many years, they 
would have quarrelled fiercely, or 
ho would infallibly have been a 
henpecked husband. . . . The 
troth is, ^tito Madune Esmond 
never came near man or woman 
but she tried to domineer over 
them. K people obeyed she was 
their very good friend ; if they 
resisted, she fo"ght and fought 
until she or they gave in. We are 
all miserable sinners : that's a 
fact we acknowledge in pahUo 
every Sunday — no one announced 
it in a more clear resolute voice

She is strict with her sons and 
her household, and rules over her 
estate like a queen. Fond of 
flattery and compliments, and 
governed by her feelings rather 
than by reason, she soon quarrels 
with hep eldest son George, who 
recognizes these faults and is ren

is her favourite, and for many

When Harry Warrington comes

Wlicn a dissolute young man, 
he had, under the assumed name 
of George Brandon, tricked a 
yomig girl into a sham marriage 
and then deserted her, later mar 
rying a rich woman, Philip's 
mother. Possessed of brilliant 
abilities but no conscience, he is 
selfish and hypocritical at all 
times and entirely out of sym 
pathy with his son, Philip, who 
chafes against his father's deceit 
and obsequiousness. He pretends 
remorse for his treatment of Mrs. 
Brandon (the young woman whom 
he deceiv.'d), but plays upon her 
affection for Philip to keep her 
from trying to claim a legal 
marriage. Having lost his own 
money in speculation, he makes 
away with Philip's also by a 
fraud on the trustee, flees the 
count y when Philip comes of 
age, and establishes himself in 
Nt York, where he spreads re-

" Her anecdotes were not nu-

times, I can hear her ceaseless 
simple cackle ; see her faint eyes 
as she prattles on unconsciously, 
and watch the dark looks of 
her handsome silent husband, 
scowling under his eyebrows and 
cmiling behind his teeth. I dare- 
say he ground those teeth with 
suppressed rage sometimes. 1 
daresay to bear with her endless 
volubility must have taxed his 
endurance. He may have treated 
her ill, but she tried him. She, on

"When Philip was moved, he 
called to all the world to witness 
his emotion. When he was angry, 
hi,' enemies were all the rogues and 
scoundrels in the world. He 
vowed he would have no meroy on 
them, and desired all his ac- 
quaintances to participate in his 
anger . . ." 

" Philip roared his griefs : he 
shouted his laughter : he bellowed 
his applause : he was extravagant 
in his humility as in his pride, in 
his admiration of his friends and 
contempt for his enemies : I 
daresay not a juat man, but I

when he comes of age he finds 
that the carelessness of his trustee. 
Gen. Baynes, has enabled his 
father I^. Krmin to embezzle 
the whole amount. This gives 
Philip a legal claim on Gen. 
Baynes, which he generously fore- 
goes. He falls in love with 
Chariotte Baynes, and follows 
the Baynes family to Ptois, where 
he passes some of the happiest 
days of his life, earning a pre- 
carious living as a newspaper 
correspondent. Eventually he and

career are autobiographical, 
in that they are reminiscences 
of Thackeray's own experi- 
ence, particularly the chap- 
ters on his journalistic work, 
life in Paris, and marriage on 
a small income, the character 
of the hero is sketched from 
an early friend of the author's, 
I)erhap8 Mr. Savile Morton. 
" A gentleman came to see me 
the other day, muo was so like 
the picture of Philip Firmin in 
Mr, Walker's charming drawings 
in the ComhiU Magazine, that he 
was quite a curiosity to me. 
The same eyes, beard, shoulders, 
just as you have seen them from 
month to month. Well, he is not 
like the Philip Firmin in my mind. 
Asleep, asleep in the grave, lies 
the bold, the generous, the reck- 
less, the tender-hearted creature 
whom I have made to pass 
through those adventures which

His various love affairs are 
related in the FUt-BootOe Papera 
as follows : 

Fitz-Boodle'a Confeaaiona. — Prom 
boyhood he had smoked to 
excess, was rusticated at col- 
lege on that account, and later 
compelli'd to resign Trom his 
regiment by an altercation with 
his colonel over his tobacco. He 
is soft-hearted, and when he falls 
in love with the rich Mary M'Alis- 
ter, m ';o8 an attempt to give up 
his smoking, but cannot keep his 
promise, though by his failure he 
loses Mary. Eventually this habit 
separates him from his family and 
caused him to be regarded with 
disfavour by his friends' wives. 

Miaa Lowe. — After losing his 
chance of a rich wife for the sake 
of a smoke, Fitz-Boodle travels 
abroad and lingers at Bonn, 
fascinated by the charms of the 
pretty Jewess, Miss Lowe. Her 
relatives put up with his insular 
bluster and rudeness for the sake 
of gain, and, although they cheat 
him right and left, his flirtation 
lasts onto he k lepiked by Ute 

lady herself and finds himself in 
• fracas with her intended, Mr. 

Dorothea. — When visiting in the 
principality of Kalbebraten-Pum- 

pernickcl Fitz-Boodle falls in love 
with Dorothea von Speck, the 
daughter of the Court Architect. 
Though he had previously prac- 
tised in vain with French and 
English dancing masters, Fitz 
takes dancing lessons again for 
Dorothea's sake, hoping thus to 
advance his suit, but when he 
attempts to dance with her at ti j 
Court ban he opsets her, both 
sprawl on the floor in the presence 
of hundreds of spectators, and his 
romance ends. 

Ottilia. — After his unfortunate 
experiment as a dancer, George 
Fitz-Boodle turns the laugh from 
himself to Dorothea by having the 
surgeon report him as dangerously 
injured, and by writing biting 
epigrams. Having cast Dorothea 
out of his heart, he transfers his 
affections to the ethereal Ottilia 
von Schlippenschlopp, whose po- 
etic gifts he admires until it 
dawns upon him that her nose ie 
growing red and she eats too 
much. His passion for her van- 
ishes entirely when at a banquet 
he sees her deroaring bad oysters 
with gusto.

" everj-one had a cer-

except ciiildren, who came to her 
trustingly, and, as it were, by 
instinct. Tlie habitual melan- 
choly of her eyes vanished as they 
lighted upon young faces and 
infantile smiles. A sweet love 
beamed out of her countenonce : 
an angelic smile shone over her 
face, as she bent towards them 
and caressed thorn. Hit de- 
meanour then, nay, her looks and 
ways at other times; — a certain 
gracious sadness, a sympathy with 
all grief, and pity for all pain ; a 
gen" heart, yearning towards all 
chL ' .-n; arU, for her own es- 
pecially, feeling a love that was 
almost an anguish ; in the affairs 
of the common world only a 
dignified acquiesconee, ss if her

life liciiccfi.rlli is uneventful and 
monotonous, but marked by great 
patience, piety, and goodness. As 
a sweet and placid old lady who 
still cherishes the recollection of 
her eariy love, she meets Colonel

"The Fokers had been at the 
Cistercian school from father to 
son ; at which place our friend 
. . . had been dreadfully bullied 
on account of his trade, his un- 
comely countenance, his inapti- 
tude for learning and cleanliness, 
his gluttony, and other weak 
points. But those who know how 
a susceptible youth, under the 
tyranny ci his schoolfellows, be- 
comes silent and a sneak, may 
understand how, in a very few 
months after his liberation from 
bondage, he developed himself as 
he had done ; and became the 
bnnuntmi, tbe mnuHc, the 

brilliant Foker with whom we 
have made acquaintance. A dunce 
he always was, it is true ; for 
learning cannot be acquired by 
leaving school and entering at 
college as a fellow-commoner ; 
but he was now (in his own pecu- 
liar manner) as great a dandy as 
he before had been a slattern, and 
when he entered his sitting-room, 
to join his two guests, arrived 
scented and arrayed in fine linen, 
and perfectly splendid in appear- 
ance." Ch. V. 

" He had a bulldog between his 
legs, and in his scarlet shawl neck- 
cloth was a inn represmting 
another bulldog in gold : he wore 
a fur waistcoat laced over with 
gold chains ; a green cut-away 
coat with basket buttons, and a 
white upper-coat, ornamented 
with cheese-plate buttons, on each 
of which was engraved some 
stirring incident of the toad or 
the chase ; all of which orna- 
ments set off this young fellow's 
figure to such advantage, that 
you would hesitate to say which 
character in life he most resem-

He knew Arthur Fiendennis at 
Grey Friars' School, and intro- 
duces him to Miss Fotheringay, 
the actress. In spito of his 
eccentricities, he is acute, good-

friendly terms with high and low. 
It is settled in the two funilies

FoTHKBiNOAT, Ifiss. Stage name of 

Miss Emily Costigan. A beautiful, 
stupid actress at the Chatteris 
theatre, where Arthur Pbndennis 
sees her and falls in love with her. 
Pen. i, iv-xiv, xvi, xix, xxviii, 
xU-xlii, xliv. 

" She was the tallest of women, 
and at her then age of six-and- 
twenty — for six-and-twenty she 
was, though she vows she was 
only nineteen — in the prime and 
fulness of her beauty. Her fore- 
head was vast, and her black hair 
waved over it with a nataiml 
rip]^, wad WM ccmfined fai ibfa^ 




and voluminoua braids at the 
back of a neck such as you see on 
the shoulders of the Louvre Venus. 
. . . Her eyes, when she liftec 
them up to gaze at you, and ere 
she dropped their purple deep* 
fringed lids, shone with tenderness 
and mystery unfathomable. Love 
and Genius seemed to look out 
from them and then retire coyly, 
as if ashamed to have been seen 
at the lattice. Who could have 
had Booh a commanding brow but 
a woman of high intellect ? She 
never laughed (indeed her teeth 
were not good), but a smile of 
endless tendemesB and sweetness 
played round her beaatifol lips, 
and in the dimples of her cheeks 
and her lovely chin. Her nose 
defied descripticm in tbose days. 
Her ears were like two Uttle pearl 
shells, which the earrings she wore 
(though the handsomest proper- 
ties in the theatre) only insulted. 
. . . But it was her hand and 
arm that this magnificent creature 
most excelled in, and somehow 
you could never see her but 
through them. They surrounded 
her. When she folded them over 
her bosom in resignation ; yvhen 
she dropped them in mute agony, 
or raised them in superb com- 
mand; when in Bposiam guety 
her hands fluttered and waved 
before her, like — what shall we 
say ? — like the snowy doves be- 
fore the chariot of Venus — it was 
with these arms and hands that 
she beckoned, repelled, entreated, 
embraced her admirers." Ch. iv. 

Although Pendennis is many 
yean her junior, she is oioonraged 
by hm fatiwr to meeufi him, bat 

breaks the engagement on learn- 
ing that the boy is not rich. She 
then goes to London, makes a 
great hit on the stage there, and 
marries the elderly Sir Charles 
Mirabel, who introduces her to 
London society. She discharges 
her social duties gracefully and 
gravely, and pensions her father. 
Nofe. — ^It is generally agreed that 
Miss Fotheringay was drawn 
from Miss Eliza O'Neill, the 
actress (later Lady Becher).

" How she became Madame 
Fribsby, nobody knows : she had 
left Clavering to go to a milliner's 
in London as Miss Fribsby — she 
pretended that she had pot the 
rank in Paris during her residence 
in that city. . . . Suffice to say, 
she went away from home a 
bouncing young lass ; she re- 
turned a rather elderly character, 
with a Madonna front and a 
melancholy countenance — bought 
the late tin. Harbottle's business 
for a song — took her elderly 
mother to live with her ; was very 
good to the poor, was constant at 
church, and had the best of cha- 
racters. But there was i ■> one 
in all Clavering, not Mn. TortrnKa 
herself, who read so many novels 
as Madame Fribsby." Ch. xvi. 

Colonel Altamont, under the 
name of Johnny Armstrong, had 
married her in London and de- 
serted her two months later. It 
is her recognition of him, years 
after, that reveals the fact tiiai 
he had been married several times 
before he married Lady Clavering.

" A humorous caricature of

Daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James

much reading of noveb. 8hab. 
O. 8. i-vi, viii-ix. As Mrs. 
Brandon she appears in Philip, 
for which see Bbandon, Mrs. 

" Caroline was pale and thin, 
and had fair hair and meek grey 
eyes ; nobody thought her a 
beauty in her mc^EHng cotton 

" It was Carry's usual fate to 
remain at home, and help the 
servant in the many duties that 
were required in Mrs. Gann's 
establishment. She dressed that 
lady and her sisters, brought her 
papa his tea in bed, kept the 
lodgers' bills, bore their scoldings 
if they were ladies, and sometimes 
gave a hand in the kitchen if any 
extra piecrust or cookery was 
required. At two she made a 
Uttle toilet for dinner, and was 
employed on numberiess house- 
hold darnings and mendings in 
the long evenings. ... A weary 
lot, in sooth, was yours, poor little 
Caroline ! Since the days of 
your infancy, not one hour of 
sunshine, no Mendship, no cheery 
playfellows, no mother's love ; 
but that being dead, the aflectikms 
which would have crept round it, 
withered and died too. . . . 


"She felt that she was ill- 
treated, and had no companion ; 
but was not on that account 
envious, only humble and de- 
pnwed, not desiring to much to 
resist as to bear injustice, and 
hardly venturing to think for 
henelf. This tyranny and hu 
mility served her in place o: 
education, and formed her man 
ners, which were wondeifaUy gen 
tie and calm." Ch. i. 

Despised and neglected at home, 
when Mr. Brandon appears as a 
boarder in her mother's house she 
gives her whole affection to him in 
the belief that he is all that is good 
and noble. In spite of her ig 
norance and her strong affecticm 
for him, she has enough sense and 
principle to refuse his dishonour 
able advances, and finally marries 
him by a ceremony which she 
believes to be regular and legal, 
but which he knows to be entirely 

Gann, James, Esq. Formerly a 
member of the firm of Gann & 
Blubbery. Father of Caroline 
Gann {Mrs. Brandon). A good- 
natured, vulgar, lazy, and boast- 
ful old man, who spends most of 
his time at the nearest pubUc- 
house. Sfiab. 0. S. i-vi, ix ; 
Phil, iii, v-vi, z-xii, xvi, xxx. 

" He was now a fat bald-headed 
man of fifty ; a dirty dandy on 
week-days, with a shawl-waist- 
coat, a tuft ci hair to his great 
double chin, a snu£Fy shirt-frill 
and enormous breast-pin and seals: 
he had a pilot-coat, with large 
mother-of-pearl buttons, and al- 
ways wore a great rattiing tele- 
scope. ... His wrenes and former 

10«___ OAV 

splendours afforded a never-failing 
theme of conversation to honest 
Gann and the whole of his family. 
. . . His tastes were low ; he loved 
pubHe-hoose }okes and oompany ; 
and now being fallen, was voted 
at the ' Bag of Nails ' ... a tip- 
top fellow and real gmtkmsa, 
whereas he had been considered 
an ordinary vulgar man by his 
fashionable associates at Potaey." 
Shabby Oenteel Story, i. 

As a young man of some wealth 
he had married the widow of En- 
sign Macarty. When the firm 
of Gann ft Blubbery fails he 
makes a pretence of maintaining 
an agency at Margate, where his 
wife takes lodgers. In spite of his 
affection for his daughter Caro- 
line, he does nothing to improve 
her position with her mother, 
and is henpecked by his wife and 
despised by his step-daughters. 
In Philip he hves with Mrs. 
Brandon (Caroline), after having 
heea turned adrift by his step- 
daughters, and is called " Cap-

she was faidifferently called by her

extraordinary way, and to hear 
her you would fancy that she was 
known to and cooneeted witii hatf

was taking medicine, and mending 
and altering her gowna. She hat 
a huge taste for cheap finery, 
loved raffles, tea-partiea, and walks 
on the pier, when die flaouted 
herself and daughters as gay as

rank, did not fail to tell her 
lodgers that she was * a gentle

" Philalcthos." Phil, xxxi, xxxiv. 
N(4e. — The original was the New 
York CormUr, N. P. WHlis's 
journal, and Philip's "Philp- 
lethes " letters are probably a 
reminiaoence of an early jour- 
nalistk ezperisnoe of Thmk- 
eray's own. In 1839 N. P. 
Willis engaged Tliackeray to 
contribute letters from Paris 
and Ixmdon (o the Coraair. 
Eight such letters were 
printed in the Coraair over 
the signature "T. T." The 
point of the name given to 
the Oazette is found in the 
fact that N. P. Willis was the 
originator of the familiar 
phrase, "upper ten thou- 
sand." (See Beers. Life of 
N. P. Willis, pp. 2.54-256.)

In Pendennis he is the physician 
who attends Arthur Pendennis 
when he has a fever in London. 
In Philip he helps the Little 
Sister in her trouble, admires her 
greatly, and always distrusts and 
dUikM Dr. llrmin, alUioa|^ he 

is kind to Philip Firmin when the 

latter needs help. 

N(ae. — While Pendennis was being 
written Thackeray was seri- 
ously ill, and was attended 
by Dr. John ElUotson, to 
whom he owed his recovery. 
Like Dr. Goodenough, who 
scorned to take a fee from 
a literary man. Dr. EUiotson 
would take no fee, and when 
Pendennis was finished it 
was dedicated to him. He is 
said to have been the model

Note. — In the school and hospital 
of Orey Friara the author 
has immortalized the famous 
Charterhouse, where he him- 
self was once a schoolboy. 
While his detot^ptfam of the 
institution is •ooorate and 
sjrmpathetic, Thackeray has 
taken some Uberties with 
historical facts in making 
Ookmd Newcome bo& ft pupil 
and pensioner there, as there 
is said to be no real case on 
record in which a former 
student of the Charterhonae 
school has later been received 
as a pensioner in the oth«r 
branch of the foundation.

"Gumbo was very much ad- 
mired and respected by very many 
of the domestic circle. Gumbo 
had a hundred accomplishments. 
He was famotu ai a jBshmnan, 
huntsman, bl^ksmith. He could 
dress hair beautifully, and im- 
proved himself in the art under 
my Lord's own Swiss gentleman. 
He was great at cooking many of 
his Virginian dishes, and learned 
many new ooHnaiy seoiets from 
my Lord's French man. We have 
heard how exquisitely and melodi- 
ously he sang at church ; and he 
sang not mify sacred but secular 
moac, oftm inventing aiis and 

110 cm: 

composing rude words after the 
habit of his people. He played 
the fiddle so charmingly, that he 
set all the gith dancing in Castle- 
wood hall, and was ever welcome 
to a gratis mug of ale at the 
'Three Castles' ir !' village, 
if he would but b. 's fiddle 
with him. He was . matured 
and loved to pla^ for tne village 
children: so that Mr. Warring- 
ton's negro was a universal favour- 
ite in all the Castlewood domain. 

" Now it was not difficult for 
the servants'-hall folk to perceive 
that Mr. Gumbo was a liar, which 
fact was undoubted in spite of all 
his good qualities." C9i. zvi. 

He accompanies his master to 
England, and, by his lies, leads 
the Cutlewood family to believe 
that Harry is enormously wealthy. 
He is very faithful to Harry in hii 
misfortunes, and, when his master 
leaves England, remains behind 
with George, marries Molly the 
maid, and is given his freedom to 
reward him for his faithful ser-

When she disooTers that her 
seducer, Galgenstein, is ready to 
turn her adrift she tries to poison 
him, and then runs away. She

wheedles \ ' \ into accepting her 
son, Tom billih^'N After she and

ambitious to become his wife if 
she can get her husband out of the

JMe. — Catherine Hayea was a 
real murderess, who, in 1726, 
was bamed st the stake 
the murder of her husband, 
John Hayes. The murder, 
which was a particularly bru- 
tal and callous one, formed 
one of the cmuu edibres of 
the day, and is reported in 
some detail in the Newgate 
Cdenthr. Except for neces- 
sary elaboration of her early 
hfe, Thackeray's story follows 
very faithfully the account 
ol the NewgaU Gtimlm.

spite of the help which he received 
from his sister Martha and from 
the Colonel. His chapel is fashion- 
able lor a time, but is soon a 
failure, and he is imprisoned for 
debt until Colonel Newcome comes 
to his aasistanoe. When Mr. Sher- 
rick, the money-lender, takes the 
chapel in hand as a business in- 
vestment Honeyman and Lady 
Whittlesea's become more fashion- 
able than ever, and the incumbent 
eventually marries Mw (derrick 
and goes to India. 

In Lovd he has tricked an old 
college friend, Mr. Batchelor, into 
buying a worthless Uterary jour- 

Honeyman, Martha. Sister of 
Colonel Newcome's wife, a kind, 
brisk, dignified old lady, who has 
received many favours from the 
Colonel. Newe. iii-v, vii, ix, xiv- 
ZT, zzi, xzvi, xli-xlii, xlviii, Ixxi, 

"Aunt Honeyman was a woman 
of a thousand virtues; cheerful, 
frugal, honest, laborious, charit- 
able, good-humoured, truth-tell- 
ing, devoted to her family, capable 
of any sacrifice for those she loved ; 
and when she came to have losses 
of money, Fortune straightway 

compensated her by many kind- 
nesses which no income can sup- 
ply. The good old lady admired 
tlw word gentlewoman of all 
others in the En^h Tooabolaiy, 
and made all around her feel that 
such was her rank." Ch. ix. 

Having been left with bat lit- 
tle money, she lets lodgings at 
Brighton, and is a great contrast 
to her wtMrthless brother Charles, 
whose pretensions she sees through. 
Note. — The character of Miss 
Honeyman is said to be a

Becher, to whose care Thack-

xxii, XXX, xxxi, xxxvi, xlii. 

"The Prince seemed deter- 
mined not only to secure a 
progeny, but to defy age. At 
sixty he was still young, or 
seemed to be so. His hair was 
as black as the princess's own, 
his teeth as white. If you saw 
him on the Boulevard de Gand, 
sunning among the youthful ex- 
quisites there, or riding aw Bois, 
with a grace worthy of old 
Franconi himself, you would take 
him for one of the young men." 
Ch. xxxi. 

Anxious to have a direct hwe he 
had married again when over sixty 
years old, and was much disap- 
pointed that the only child of this 
marriage was a girl. He and his 
wife soon quanri because ci the 
light conduct of the Duchesse.

"That pretty figure and com- 
plexion which still appear so cap- 
tivating in M. Dubufe's portrait 
of Madame la Duchesse d'lvry 
have long existed — it must be 
owned only in paint. . . . Some- 
times the Duchess appeared with 
these potHehes rosea, sometimes 
of a mortal paleness. Sometimes 
she looked plump, on other oc- 
casions woefully thin. ... If yon 
MO her dUa An will fancy you 




are in love mth her. . . . Since she 
has grown affreusement tnaigre and 
wears mounting robes, she has 
taken more than ever to the idea 
that she resembles Mary, Queen 
of Soots. She wears a little frill 
and a little cap. Every man 
she loves, she says, has come to 
misfortune." Ch. zzxi. 

She soon wearies of the do- 
mestic life, takes up Uterature, 
goes to questionable extremes in 
poUtics and religion, and sur- 
rounds herself with followers of 
doubtful respectability, to whom 
she is known as "Mary, Queen 
of Scots." Meeting her former 
admirer. Lord Kew, at Baden, 
she puts an end to his engagement 
to Ethel Newoome, out of jc«lousy, 
and causes a duel between Lord 
Kew and M. de Castillonnes.

" The easy young nobleman bad 
passed many a year of hk life in 
all sorts of wild company. The 
Chaumidre knew him, and the 
balls of Parisian aotteaaes, the 
couliaoea of the opera at home 
and abroad. ... He had run the 
career of young men of pleasure, 
and laughed and feaated with 
jolly prodigaUi and their company. 
He waa tired of it : perhaps he 
remembered an earlier and purer 
life, and was sighing to return to 
it. Living as he had done amongst 
the outcasts, his ideal of domestic 
virtue was high and pure. He 
chose to believe that good women 
were entirely good. Duplicity he 
could not understand : ill-temper 
shocked him." Ch. xxxiii. 

During his minority he has been 
kept in seclusion by his mother, 
but after his introduction to the 
world he leads a wild, jolly life, 
of which he tires after a few years. 
At his grandmother's desire a 
marriage is arranged between him 
and Ethel Newoome, and, always 
generous and mo^st, he displays 
much forbearance towards the 
wayward girl. After this engage- 
ment is broken through the inter- 
fercnoe of the Duchesse d'lvry, 
»nd he is forced into a duel with 

M. de CsstiUoiUMs, he returns 
to hid mother and resumes his 
former quiet life. He marries 
Lady Henrietta PallM3m, settles 

on his estates, and devotes himself 
to his family and his tenantry.

" Old Lady Kew's tongue was a 
dreadful thong, which made num- 
bers of people wince. She was not 
altogether cruel, but she knew the 
dexterity with which she wielded 
her lash, and liked to exercise it. 
. . . Her Ladyship, a sister of the 
late lamented Marquis of Steyne, 
possessed no small duure of the wit 
and intelligence, and a consider- 
able resemblance to the features 
of that distingoidied noblnnan." 

She manages the business of 
every member of her family, and 
exacts obedience from all. When 
EtM Mewoome grows up Lady 
Kew takes charge of her, with 
the intention of marrying her off 
well. She arranges the engage- 
ment between Ethel and Lord 
Kew, her two ' ourite grand- 
children, and when this is broken 
off she pursues the wealthy young 
Marquis of Tkrintosh, and sue 
ceeds in bringing about an engage- 
ment between him and Ethel.

Colonel Lambert shelters him and 
treats him with much kindneaa,

hearing tales of Harry's wiU life. 
At the time of Harn/'s imprison-

comes to his relief, although the 
young man has previously quar>

Esmond withdraws her consent 
to George Warrington's engage-

love for his child overcome his 
pride when he sees that the 




but that you could see them with-

Ch. zxii. 

When George's mother with- 
draws her consent to the engage- 
ment and the young people are 
parted, Thee is ill, and does not 
recover her spirits until she sees 
George again. She is a loving 
wife, cheerful and helpful in ad-

George and liis mother, after they 
have been long separated.

" She was not a particular 
beauty. . . . Miss Theo had kind 
eyes and a sweet voice ; a ruddy 
freckled cheek and a round white 
neck, on which, out of a little cap 
such as misses wore in those times, 
fell rich curling clusters of dark 
brown hair. She was not a 
delicate or sentimental - looking 
person. Her arms, which were 
worn bare from the elbow like 
other ladies' arms in those days, 
were very jolly and red. Her feet 
were not so miraculoosly small

" There was a Cain mark, as it 
were, on this unhappy man. He 
did bring wreck and ruin on those 
who loved him. He was as a lost

gloom." Ch. iv. 

Though he is a friend of the 
Comte de Saveme and once saved 
the latter's life in battle, he un- 
scrupulously alimiates tiie Com-

■he flaes from tib« eomA, moaitt 




her to Englaad, and later kilk her 
husband in a duel. After he as- 
sociates himself with the Mackerel 
Party (smogglers), at Winchelsea, 
he becomes a spy for the IVmch 
Government. He provides gener- 
ously for Madame de Saveme's 
child, little Agnes.

point, but from various indi-

part in the story as he did 
in real life, and be executed 
as a traitor. The real La

mon soldier, and is sent abroad to 
the Seven Years' War, where he 
deserts from the English army, 
only to be impressed into the 
Prussian service. While acting 
as a Prussian spy he meets hia 
onole, the CShevalier de Balibari, 
escapes from the army by means' 
of a clever ruse, and with his 
uncle touia the diffenmt Enrtqiean 
capitals as a gambler. He falls in 
with Sir Charles and Lady Lyn- 
don, pays forcible court to the 
latter both before and after her 
husband's death, and eventuaUy 
marries her out of hand and 
changes his name from Redmond 
Barry to Btry Lynd<m. His 
wild courses soon ruin even her 
large fortune, his wife leaves him, 
and he ends his days, brokeo- 
spirited, in the fleet. 




NoU. — Barry Lyndon is a com- 
posite portrait of several fam- 
ous, or rather infamous, ori- 
ginak. The story of his life 
after hb meeting with Lady 
Lyndon, particularly his 
courtship and married life, is 
a faithful transcript of the 
actual adventures of the 
notorious Andrew Robinson 
Stoney, later known as Stoney 
Bowes, who married the great 
heirew Lady Strathmore by 
exactly Barry's high-handed 
methods. The spirit and 
general tone of the memoirs 
owe much to that celebrated 
chevalier cPindnstrie and writer 
of memoirs, the Chevalier de 
Seingalt, better known as 
Casanova. Some of the cha- 
racteristics of Barry'b last 
days — ^his cowardice in prison, 
for ezamide— are said to be 
taken from the life of Tiger 
Roche. [See Foot, Stoney- 
Bouses and the Counteaa of 
Strathmore ; also Marzial's 
ed. of Barry Lyndon, Introd.) 

Lnnxnr, ^tah. Son of Lady 
Lyndon and Barry, later called 
Viscount Castle Lyndon. A high- 
BjHrited lad, who is spoiled and 
never controlled, and who loses 
his life throo^ his disobedience 
in riding an onlndKen pony. 
Barry L. xvii-xix. 

Lyndon, Rt. Hon. Sib Csablbs 
Rboinau). Vint husband of 

Lady Ljmdon. A cynical, world- 
worn old diplomat and roui, who ] 
has married his cousin, Lady 
Lyndon, for her wealth and rank, 
hut has found only unhappiness 
in the unitm. Barry L. ziii. 

" Sir Charles Lyndon was cele- 
brated as a wit and bon vivant : 
he cuuld write love-verses against 
Hanbuiy Williams, uid make 
jokes with George Selwyn ; he 
I was a man of vertu, like Horry 
I Walpole, with whom and Mr. 

Ony he had made a put of the 
> grand tour; and was cited, in a 
1 word, as one of the most elegant 
and acoompHshed men of his 

" I made this gentleman's ac- 
quaintance as usual at the play* 
table, of which he was a constant 
frequenter. Indeed, one could 
not but admire the spirit and 
gallantry with which he pursued 
his favourite pastime ; for, though 
worn out by gout and a myriad of 
diseases, a cripple wheeled about 
in a chair, and suffering pangs of 
agony, yet you would see him 
every morning and every evening 
at his post behind the delightful 
green cloth : and if, as it would 
often happen, his own hands were 
too feeble or inflamed to hold the 
box, he would oidl the nuuns, 
nevertheless, and have his valet 
or a friend to throw for him." 
Note. — ^The original from which 
Sir Charles Lyndcm was drawn 
was Sir Charles Hanbury 
Williams, diplomat, wit, and 
poet, who was called by 
Burke " the polished courtier 
and the votary of wit and 
pleasure." (See WkOk^, p.

"She wa8 a god-daught«r of 
old Mary Wortley Montagu : atid, 
like ti>»t funoai oM wmiuui of the 
laat century, made conitiderable 
pretensions to be a blue-stocking, 
and a 6e/ e»prit. Lady Lyndon 
wrote poema in English and 
Italian, which still may be read 
by the curious in the pages of the 
magazines of the day. She enter- 
tained a oorrespondenoe with 
several of the European savanU 
upon history, science, and ancient 
languages, and especially theo- 
logy. Her pleasure was to dispute 
controversial points with abb68 
and bishops ; and her flatterers 
said she rivalled Madame Dacier 
in iMming. Every adventtner 
who had a discovery in chemistry, 
a new antique bust, or a plan for 
diaoovering the philoeoplier's stone 
was sure to find a patroness in her. 
She had numberless works dedi 
cated to her, and sonnets without 
end addiesf 1 to her by all the 
ixwtastets of Europe, under the 
luunn of Lindonira or Calista 
Her rooms were crowded with 
hideous China magots, and all 
sorts of objects of vertu. No 
woman piqued herself more upon 
her principles, or allowed love to 
be made to her more profusely." 
Cb. xiii. 

She ignores Barry at first, but 

he wins her attention by allowing 
her to correct his theological 
errors, and she corresponds with 
him. After her first husband's 
death she allows herself to be so 
enmeshed and compromised by 
Barry's unprincipled courtship 


that she is forced into marrying 
him, although she botii lean and 

despises him. Henceforth nhe 
leads a wretched life with her 
brutal husband, who v .^tes her 
fortune and tt;ats her with in- 
dignity. Though she eventually 
escapes from him and lives scpa- 
rately, she is never entirely out 
of love with Barry, and fancies 
her own charms for him perennial.

was tricked into an unhappy

" She had married the Captain 
. . . when very young. Many 
sorrows she had had, including 
poverty, the Captain's imprison- 
ment for debt, and his decease : 
but she was of a gay and light- 
some si^t. She was bat thi«e 
and-thirty years old, and looked 
five-and-twenty. She was active, 
briak, jovial, and alert; and so 
good-looking that it v/a« a wonder 
she had not taken a successor to 
Captain Mackenzie." 

" Mrs. Mack was not all honey, 
it appeared. If Rosey played 
incorrectly, mamma flew at her 
with prodigious vehemence of 
language, Mid sometimes with a 
slap on poor Rosey's back. She 
must make Rosey wear tight 
boots, and stamped on her little 
feet if they refused to enter into

haired lass, with a very sweet 
voice, in which she sings (unaided 
by instrumental music, and seated

room) the artless ballads of her

Pretty, good-natured, and silly, 
with iio will of her own, and fond 
of admiration and society, she 
wins the hearts of Colonel New- 
come and her uncle, Mr. Binnie, 
by her childish, affectionate ways. 
She is quite willing to marry Clive 
when her uncle and Colonel New- 
come arrange the marriage, but 
she has little real affection for her 
husband, allows herself to be ruled 
by her mother, and is therefore 
unhappy and jealous when her 
money is lost, and she fancies 
that Clive still cares for his cousin 
Ethel. Her marriage affords little 
happiness to either herself or 
Clive, and she dies within a few 
years, her last days rendered un- 
happy by her terrible mother.

" Our chief, whom England and 
all Europe, saving only the French- 
men, worshipped almost, had this 
of thegodhkeinhim, thathe wrsImabmobotoh, Hxjsm 

impassable before victory, before 
danger, before defeat. Before the 
greatest obstacle or the most 
trivial ceremony ; before a hun- 
dred thousand men drawn ir 
battalia, or a peasant slaughtered 
at the door of his burning hoveJ ; 
before a carouse of drunken G«r- 
man lords, or a monarch's court, 
or a cottage table where his pkns 
were laid, or an enemy's batt£>ry, 
vomiting flame and "death, and 
strewing corpses round about Um ; 
—he was always cold, calm, reso- 
lute, like fate. He perforned a 
treason or a court-bow, he told a 
falsehood as '.lack as Strx, as 
easily as he paid a complircent or 
spoke about the weather. He 
took a mistress and left her ; he 
betrayed his benefactor, and sup- 
ported him, or would have mur- 
dered him, with the same calm- 
ness always, and having no more 
remorse than Clotho when she 
weaves the thread, or Lachesis 
when she cuts it. . . . Our Duke 
was as calm at the mouth of the 
cannon as at the door of a draw- 
ing-room. Perhaps he could not 
have been the great man he was, 
had he had a heart either for love 
or hatred, or pity or fear, or re- 
gret or remorse. He achieved the 
highest deed of daring, or deepest 
calculation of thought, as he per- 
formed the very meanest action 
of which a man is capable ; told a 
he, or cheated a fond woman, or 
robbed a poor beggar of a half- 
penny, with a hke awful serenity 
and equal capacity of the highest 
and lowest acts of our nature."

" Her hair had that deep glow-

It was of burning auburn. Mean-

below it. A light blue velvet 
fillet clasped with a diamond 

aigrette (valued at two hundrec 
thousand tomauns, and bou^^ht 
from Lieutenant Viscovich, who 
had received it from Dost Ma-

A sea-green cymar, with short

Pink gauze trousers spangled with 
silver, and slippers of the same

Meredith, Colonel (Hist.). One 
of Mohun's seconds in the duel

H. Es. Bk. 3, V, vi. 
Note. — Lieutenant - Gen. Thomas 
Meredith was actually, as 
Thackeray states, " broke for 
drinking perdition to the 

Tories" along with Gen. 
Macartney. While Thacke- 
ray's Meredith is, therefore, 
a real person, the inclusion 
of Meredith in the Mohu.i- 
Hamilton dael seems entirely 
fictitious. Contemporary ac- 
counts of the duel (Examiner, 
20 Nov., 1712; Post Boy, 
18 Nov., 20 Nov., 1712; 
Hist. MSS. Commission, 11th 
Report, pt. 5) all describe it 
as having been fought two on 
s side, not three, as Thackeray 
has it, and mention as the 
only seconds Col. Hamilton 
for the Duke, and Macartney 
for Mohun. Meredith's name 
is not mentioned.

" It appeared from these poems 
that the young creature had in- 
deed suffered prodigiously. She 
was familiar with the idea of 
suicide. Death she repeatedly 
longed for. A faded rose inspired 
her with such grief that yoa 
would have thought she must die 
in pain of it. It was a wonder 
how a young creature should have 
suffered so mnch — should have 
found the means of getting at such 
an ocean of despair and passion 
. . . and having embariced on it, 
should survive it."

" He did not dine in the 
steward's room, but took his 
nutriment in solitude in his own 
apartments, where a female ser- 
vant was affected to his private 
use. It was a grand sight to be- 
hold him in his dressing-gown 
tiomposing a menu. He always 
sate down and played the piano 
tm some time before. If intw> 

ruptod, ho remonstrated pathe- 
tically. Every great artist, he 
said, had need oi sditode to per* 
fectionate his works." Pen. xxii. 

" He walked among them quite 
onsospioiously upon the after- 
noon of a summer day ... in his 
usual favourite costume, namely, 
his light green frock or paletot, 
his crimson velvet waistcoat with 
blue glass buttons, his pantalon 
ficossais of a very largo and de- 
cided check pattern, his orange 
satin neckcloth, and his jean- 
boots, with tips of shiny leather, 
— these, with a gold-embroidered 
cap, and a richly-gilt cane, or 
other varieties of ornament of a 
similar tendency, formed his usual 
holiday costume, in which he 
flattered himself there was notliing 
remarkable (unless, indeed, the 
beauty of his jierson should at- 
tract observation), and in which 
he considered that he exhibited 
the appearance of a gentleman of 
good Parisian ton." Pen. Ch. 

He has an exaggerated idea of 
his own importance, and fancies 
that all women fall in love with 
him. He himself, when Lady 
Clavering's eAe/, is in love witli 
Blanche Amory, to whom he de- 
clares his passion by preparing 
her favourite dishes.

"A person of a handsome 
presence, with the M air, and a 
bright daring wariike appect.which 
according to the chronicle of those 
days, had ahready achieved for 
him the conquest of seve ral beau 
ties and toasts. He had fought 
and cmquered m France, as well 
as in Flanders ; he had served a 
couple of campaigns with the 
Prince of Baden on the Danube, 
and witnessed the rescue of Vienna 
from the Turk. And he spoke of 
his military exploits pleasantly, 
and with the manly freedom of a 
soldier." Bk. 1, xii. 

" He had sunk by this time to 
the very worst reputation; he 
had had another fatal duel in 
Spain ; he had married, and for- 
sdcen his wife ; he was a gambler, 
a profligate, and debauchee." 
"Esmond had not seen the 

hateful handsome face of Mo- 
hun Iwr nine years, since they 
had met on that fatal night in 
Leicester Field. It was degraded 
with crime and passicm now, it 
wore the anxious look of a man 
who has three deaths, and who

Note.— For the purposes of the 
story, Thackeray changed 
Lord Mohun's name from 
Charles, his real name, to 
Harry, the name used in the 
novel. Ci I .ohun's many 
duels, the one chosen by 
Thackeray as the model for 
the duel with Lord Castle- 
wood was the affair, in 1698, 
in which Richard Coote was 
killed. Both Mohun and his 
friend and ally, the Earl of 
Warwick and Holland, were 
engaged in th:_ duel, and the 
points of resemblance are 
striking. For these see the

" There was plenty of room in 
Castlewood House, and Mrs. Moun- 
tain served to enliven the place. 
She played cards with the mis- 
tress : she had some knowledge of 
music and could help the eldest 
boy that way : she laughed and 
was pleased with the guests : she 
saw to the strangers' chambers, 
and presided over the presses and 
linen. She was a kind, brisk, 
jolly-looking widow, and more 
than one unmarried gentleman 
of the colony had asked her to 
change her name for his own. 
But she chose to keep that of 
Mountain, though, and perhaps 
because it had brought her no 
good fortune. One marriage was 
enough for her, the aauL Mr. 

Mountain had amiably spent her 
little fortune and his own. Her 
last trinkets went to pay his 
funeral ; and, as long as Madam 
Warrington would keep her at 
Castlewood, she preferred a home 
without a husband to any which 
as yet had been offered to her in 
Virginia. The two ladies quar- 
relled plentifully ; but they loved 
each other : they made up their 
differences : they fell out again, 
to be reconcHed presently." Ch. v. 

The two ladies had been school 
friends, and when Mrs. Mountain 
was left in poverty after her hus- 
band's death, she and her little 
daughter came to Virginia and 
were received kindly by Madame

pleasure deooronsly, and iow hk 
wild oata as some of the young 
Londoners sow them, not broad- 
cast, after the fashion of careless, 
scatterbrained youth, but trimly 
and neatly, in quiet places, where 
the crop can come up unobserved, 
and be taken in without bustle 
or scandal. Barnes Newcome 
never missed going to church or 
dressing for dinner. He never 
kept a tradesman waiting for his 
money. He seldom drank too 
much, and never was late for 
business or huddled over his 
toilet, however brief had been 
his sleep, or severe his headache. 
In a word, h3 was as scrupulously 
whited as any sepulchre in the

" Clive in his youth was of the 
ornamental class of mankind — a 
customer to tailors, a wearer of 
handsome rings, shirt-studs, mus- 
taohios, long hair, and the like ; 
nor could he help, in his costume 
or his nature, being picturesque, 
and generous, aiMl qplmdid. . . . 
He would give a comrade a ring 
or a fine jewelled pin, if he had 
no money. Silver drasnng-oases 
and brocade morning-gowns were 
in him a sort of propriety at this 
season of his youth. It was a 
pleasure to persons of colder 





temperament to sun themselves 
in the wannth of his bright looks 

and generous humour. His laugh- 
ter cheered f>ae like wine. I do 
not know that he was very witty ; 
but he was pleasant. He was 
prone to blush ; the history of a 
generous trait moistened his eyes 
instantly. He was instinctively 
fond of children, and of the other 
sex from one year old to eighty." 
Ch. xxiv. 

At an early age he is sent home 
from India, and spends several 
years in school at Grey Friars. 
When he is a gay, good-looking 
lad of about sixteen his father 
returns from India and his school- 
dayB are over. Electing to be- 
come an artist, he enters Gandish's 
Drawing Academy, where he en- 
joys his life and becomes a 
favourite with all. Later he and 
his friend J, J. go to the Continent 
to pursue their art studies, and at 
Baden he meets his cousin Ethel 
and falls in love with her. Al- 
though he loves her faithfully and 
long, he has not the wealth and 
position necessary to win her. 
Finally, to please his father, 
whose deep affection he returns, 
be married Rosey Mackenzie, but 
does not find himself happy, and 
in const quence is out of sympathy 
with both his father and his wife. 
When the Colonel loses both his 
own money and Rosey's Clive 
loyally supports him in his course 
of action, and bears the resulting 
domestic burdens with courage. 
Wt jn Rosey dies, after much un- 
happiness for both Clive and her- 
f, Clive devotes himself to his 
little Km, and latw manries Elhel, 

to whom his heart had always 
remained faithful.

She was a very silly, vain wo-

life. Her first husband. Captain 
Casey, had mistreated her, and 
after his death Colonel Newcome 
had married her out of pity for 
her friendlessness and helpless* 

Newcome, Ethel. Eldest daughter 
of Sir Brian and Lady Ann : a 
beautiful, generous, high-spirited 
girl. Netoe. iv, ix-x, xiv-xvii, xx-

" She is . . . rather taller than 
the majority of women ; of a 
countenance somewhat grave and 
haughty, but on occasion brighten- 
ing with humour or beaming with 
kindliness and affection. Too 
quick to detect affectation or in- 
sincerity in others, too impatient 
of dulness or pomposity, she is 
more sarcastic now than she be- 
came when after years of suffering 
had softened her nature. Tmth 
looks out of her bright eyes, anJ 
rises up armed, and flashes scorn 
or denial, peiliaps too readily, 
when she encounters flattery, or 
meanness, or imposture. After 
her first appeanuoee in tlie worid, 




if the truth must be told, this 
young lady was popular neither 
with many men nor with most 
women. . . . But those who had 
no cause to heed Diana's shot or 
coldness might admire her beauty; 
nor could the famous Parisian 
marble, which Clive said she re- 
sembled, be more perfect in form 
than this yoimg lady. Her hair 
and eyebrows were jet black 
(these latter may have been too 
thick according to some physiog- 
nomists, giving rather a stem ex- 
pression to the eyes, and hence 
causing those guilty ones to trem- 
ble who came under her lash), but 
her complexion was as dazzlingly 
fair and her cheeks as red as Miss 
Roaey's own, who had a right to 
those beauties, being a blonde by 
nature. In Miss Ethel's black 
hair there was a slight natural 
ripple, as when a fresh breeze 
blows over the mdan hvdor—a 
ripple such as Roman ladies nine- 
teen hundred years ago, and our 
own beauties a short time since, en- 
deavoured to imitate by art, paper, 
and I believe crumpling-irons. 
Her eyes were grey ; her mouth 
rather large ; her teeth as regular 
and bright as Lady Kew's own ; 
her voice low and sweet ; and her 
smile, when it lighted up her face 
and eyes, as beautiful as spring 
sunshine ; also they could lighten 
and flash often, and sometimes, 
though rarely, rain." Oi. xxiv. 

As children she and her cousin 
Clive are friends, and when Colonel 
Newcome returns from India, he 
and bis niece become very fond of 
each other. Owing to her faulty 
and worldly edocaticm, idw de- 

velops into a very ambitious 
young woman, attaching undue 
importance to wealth and social 
position, although she is at all 
times impatient of mediocrity 
and meanness. When Clive falia 
in love with her at Baden, she is 
too proud to yield to her affection 
for him, but prefers, for worldly 
reasons, to engage herself to her 
cousin. Lord Kew. Impetuous 
and wayward, she tries Kew's 
patience severely, and the en- 
gagement is finally broken. She 
is on the eve of marrying Lord 
Farintosh, a great match, when 
Lady Clara Newcome runs away 
from hei husband. Realizing 
then for the first time the false- 
ness of a worldly marriage, Ethel 
dismisses Lord Farintosh and 
nobly devotes herself to her 
brother's children and to her own 
family. When CUve and the 
Colonel are in trouble, she finds 
her grandmother's letter directing 
that a codicil be added to her will 
in favour of Clive. As her brother 
Barnes refuses to acknowledge 
this Ethel generously pays the 
money herself. After Bosey's 
death Ethel and Clive come to- 
gether again and are married. 

Jfole. — It has been sometimes 
stated that Miss Sallie Baxter, 
of New York (later Mrs. 
Hampton), was the original 
ol Ethel Newcome. Mrs. 
Hampton's aster. Miss Lucy 
Baxter, has kindly famished 
the information that while 
there are several scenes in 
the society life of 1^1 
Newcome that were sugges- 
ted by what Thackeray saw 


of Miss Sallie Baxter in New 
Torii society in 1853, the 
characters of the two ue 
quite different.

" In face Hobson Newcome, 
Esquire, was like his elder brother

He allowed his red whiskers to 
grow wherever nature had planted 
them, on his cheeks and under his 
chin. He wore thick shoes with 
nails in them, or natty round -toed 
boots, with tight trousers and a 
single strap. He affected the 
country gentleman in his appear- 
ance. His hat had a broad brim, 
and the ample pockets of his cut- 
away coat were never destitute 
of agricultural produce, samples 
of beans or com, which he used to 
bite and chew even on 'Change, 
or a whip-lash, or balls for horses : 
in fine, he was a good old country

Imperious and severe, although 
charitable and generous, she was 
first fond of her stepson (later the 
Colonel), but was harsh and un- 
forgiving towards him when he 
grew up. Long afterwards, when 
she sees the Colonel's son Oive as 
a boy, her feelings towards her 
stepson are softened, and she 
desires to remember Clive in her 
will, but her letter expressing this 
wish is not found until years after 
her death.

He was a weaver in his native

a few years after the death of his 
first wife, married the wealthy 
Miss Hobson.

" The kind C!olonel further im- 
proved the occasion with his son, 
and told him . . . how the truest 
honour was the manly confession 
of wrong ; and the best courage 
the courage to avoid temptation. 
The humble - minded speaker, 
whose advice contained the best 
of all wisdom, that which comes 
from a gentle and reverent spirit, 
and a pure and generous heart, 
never for once thought of the 
effect which he might be pro- 
ducing, but uttered his simple 
say according to the truth within 
him. Indeed, he spoke out his 
mind pretty resolutely on all 
subjects which moved or in- 
terested him ; and Clive, his son, 
and his honest chum, Mr. Binnie, 

who had a great deal more reading 
and much keener intelligence than 
the Colonel, were amused often 
at his naive oi^nion about men, 

or books, or morals. Mr. Clive 
had a very fine natural sense of 
humour, which j^yed perpeta* 
ally round his father's simple 
philosophy, with kind and smiling 
comments. Between this pair ol 
friends the superiority of wit lay, 
almost from the very first, on the 
younger man's side ; but, on the 
other hand, Clive felt a tender 
admiration for his father's good- 
ness, a loving delight in contem- 
plating his elder's character, which 
he has never lost, and wfaJoh, in 
the trials of their future life, in- 
expressibly cheered and consoled 
both ci them." C3i. sir. 

His boyhood, after his father's 
second marriage, was unhappy, 
and he had been somewhat in- 
subordinate and boisterous. When 
very young he had fallen in love 
with Mile. Lfonore de Blois, was 
parted from her and sent to India, 
where he distinguished himself in 
the amry, and married, oat of 
pity, a young widow, who soon 
died. Exceedingly fond of his 
little son Clive, he had been forced 
to part with him and send him 
home from India. When, after 
several years, he joins Clive in 
England, they become fast friends, 
although it is socm apparent that 
the two have few intellectual 
sympathies. Generous and kindly 
to all, he thinks but of his son's 
happiness, and does all in his 
power to help Clive to win his 
cousin Ethel, to whom he himself 
is much attached. Failing in this,

he quurela with her family, re 
gMdi Ethel henelf with dis- 
favour, and arranges Clive'a mar- 
riage with Bosey Mackenzie. He 
ifl a director of the Bundelcund 
Bank, in which he very unwisely 
invests all his own money, and 
that belonging to Clive's wife as 
well. He becomes rich and stands 
for Ptoliamcnt in opposition to 
his nephew Barnes. When the 
bank fails he has to meet poverty 
and apparent dishonour, although 
his conduct is most honourable. 
Broken-hearted and driven from 
his son's house by Mn. IMackenzie, 
in humbleness of spirit he be- 
comes a pensioner of Grey Friars, 
where he soon yields to broken 
health and failing mental powers,

" At the UBQal evening hour

And just as the last bell struck,

h. face, and he lifted up his 
head a little, and quickly said

" Peggy was one of five sisters 
and eleven children of the noble 
house of Glenmalcmy; but her 
husband, though her own oousin, 
was of the mother's side, and so 
had not the inestimable advantage 
of being allied to the Malonys, 
whom she believed to be the most 
famous family in the world. Hav- 
ir. ied nin? seasons at DuUin 
ana cwo at Ba& and Cihriteoham, 
and not finding a partner for life, 
Miss Malony ordered her cousin 
Mick to marry her when she was 
»hoat thirty-three years <d a|(e; 

and the honest fellow obeying, 
eairied hm off to the West Indies, 
to preside over the ladies of tits 
— th regiment." Ch. xxvii. 

Peggy O'Dowd. is . . . kind 
in act and thought : impetuous 
in temper, eager to command : a 
tjTant over her Michael, a dragon 
amongst all the ladies of the 
regimoit: • mother to all the 
young men, whom she tends in 
their sickness, defends in all their 
scrapes, and with whom Lady 
Peggy is immensely popular. But 
the Subalterns* and Captains' 
ladies . . . cabal against her a 
good deal. They say . . . that 
Peggy herself is intolerably domi- 
neering. ... In a word, in ad- 
versity she was the best of com- 
forters, in good fortune the most 
troublesome of friends ; having 
a pt-rfectly good opinion of her- 
self always, and an indomitable 
resolution to have her own way."

Barry L. x-xii. 

" The life and soul of the Court 

of X , the gayest of the gay, 

the idol of her august father-in- 
law, and, indeed, of the whole 
Court. She 'vaa not beautiful, 
but charming; not witty, but 
charming, too, in her conversa- 
tion as in her person. She was 
extravagant beyond all measure ; 
so false, that you could not trust 
her; but her very weaknesses 
were more winning than the vir- 
tues of other women, her selfish- 
ness more deUghtful than others' 
generosity. I never knew a 
woman whose faults made her so 
attractive. She used to ruin 
people, and yet they all loved her. 
... In the early days her hus- 
band was as much fascinated by 
her as all the rest of the world 
was; but her caprices had caoMd 

frightful outbreaks of temper on 
his part, and an estrangement 

which, though interrupted by 
almost mad returns of love, was 
still genend." Ch. x. 

She is infatudtcd with the Che- 
vaUer de Magny, recklessly defies 
her husband when he discovers 
her infidelity, and at his orders is 
privately executed by Monsieur 
de Straahmrg, though it is offi- 
cially reported that she dies of 
brain fever. 

^o<e.— The prototype of the un- 
happy Princess OUvia was 
undoubtedly Princess Au - 
gusta Carohne, first wife of 
Frederick WilUam, King of 
Wurttembwg, who, according 
to the uncorroborated ac- 
count in UEmpire (upon 
which Thackeray based the 
Princess's tragedy) was put 
to death in the same manner 
and for the same reason as 
Prince Victor's wife. Some 
touches in the sketch are pro- 
bably taken also from the 
tragedy of the loves of Count 
Konigsmarck and the " Prin- 
cess of Ahlden," wife of 
George I of England. (See 
UEmpire, vol. 1, pp. 220-

His great ambition is centred 
in his only son George, whom he 
wishes to have make a rich mar- 
riage. In his days of poverty he 
had berai helped by Mr. Sedley, 
and he tolerates George's engage- 
ment to AmeUa Sedley until Mr. 
Sedley fails, when old Osborne 
heartlessly refuses to help his 
former friend, declares the en- 
gagement broken, and orders 
George to marry the rich mulatto, 
Ifiss Swartas. When Bfr. Osborne 
learns of George's marriage to 
Amelia he blots his son's nmn ft 
from the family KUe. He is 
overwhelmed by the news of his 
death at Waterloo, but refuses to 
see either Amelia or her child. 
Later, wh«i he has been offended 
by his married daughter's airs of 
superiority, he adopts the child 
and spoils him, though still le- 
taiag to forgive hk son's wiis. 

Osaoam, Catf. Qmcaam. A hand*

xiv, xvii-xviii, xx-zzii, xxv-xxx, 

"George had an air at once 
swaggering and melancholy, lan- 
guid and fierce. He looked Uke a 
man who had pasmons, secrets, 
and private harrowing griefs and 
adventures. His voice was rich 
and deep. He would say it was 
a warm evening, or ask his part- 
ner to take an ice, with \ tone as 
sad and confidential as if he were 
breaking her mother's death to 
her, or preluding a declaration of 
love. He trampled over all the 
young bucks of his father's circle, 
and was the hero anong those 
third-r*- : j men. Some few sneered 
a* him and hated him." Ch. xxi. 

He has lively sensibilities, but 
no steadfastness or loyalty, and, 
though engaged to Amelia Sedley 
from childhood, neglects and trifies 
with her as suits his convenience. 
When her rather fails and his 
friend Dobbin pictures her misery, 
George's heart is touched, and. 
his affection for her, stimulated 
by his father's opposition, makes 
him marry her at once. Six 
weeks after his marriage he so 
far succumbs to Becky Sharp's 
fascinations as to ask her to elope 
with him. He is kilkd at Waterloo. 
Nate. — Ihere was a real George 
Osborne, a young musician 
whom Thackeray knew in 
Paris. It is said that Thack- 
eray took his name (bat none 
of his characteristics) for the 
George Osborne of Vanity 
Fair. (Set Binim, Mrs. War- 
ruine, Memoirs, p. 67.)

figure. His hair was of a healthy 
brown colour, which looks like 
gold in the sunshine, his face was 
round, rosy, freckled, and good 
humoured, his whiskers were de- 
cidedly of a reddish hue ; in fact, 
without being a beauty, he hat 
such a frank, good-natured, kinc 
face, and laughed so merrily at 
you out of his honest blue eyes, 
that no wonder Mrs. Pendennis 

ih< ught him the pride of the 
whole country. Between the ages 
of sixteen and eighteen he rose 
fiun. five feet six to five feet eight 
inches in height, at which altitude 
he paused." Ch. iii. 

He is an only child who loses 
his father when he is a lad of six- 
teen and is thereafter much spoiled 
by his fond mother. Selfish, con- 
ceited, and with no heroic quali- 
ties, he is yet affectionate and 
kind and possessed of literary 
talents. At eighteen he falls in love 
with Miss Fotheringay the actress, 
throwing all his boyish heart into 
the affair, which for a time bids 
fair to end in matrimony. After 
he is rescued from this entangle- 
ment through Major Pendennis's 
diplomacy, Pen enters the Uni- 
versity of Oxbridge, where his 
career begins well, but ends disas- 
trously after he has squandered 
money and won a reputation as a 
dandy. After he goes to London 
in search of a career, and has 
some success as an author, he is 
on the point of making a worldly 
marriage with Blanche Amoiy. By 
good luck he escapes this marriage 
with his honour untarnished and 
eventually marries Laura Bell, 
whom he has come to love fondly. 
For details of Pen's career, see 
Pendennis, in Synopses. 

In the ^etoeomes Pen appears 

as a friend of Clive Newcome's 
who has renewed an acquaintance 
formed when both were schoolboys 
at Grey Friars. Although out- 
wan^Jy somewhat cynical and 
worldly, he proves a kind friend to 
the Ck)lonel and Clive when they 
are in need. 


In PkUip Pen appears as a some- 
what older man, with a family and 
an established literary reputation. 
He watches over Philip Firmin, 
another old schoolmate of his, 
helping him with advice and 
with more aubetantial aid when 
neoesaary. In addition to appear- 
ing in these novels, Pendcnnis is 
also mentioned in the Roundabout 
Paper " De Knibns." 
Note. — While Arthur Pendcnnis is 
not Thackeray himself, the 
anther and his hero have 
something in common. Thack- 
eray told Mrs. Baxter, of New 
York, that Arthur Pendennis 
was very like himself (see 
Xetter« to an American family, 
p. 6), and, writing to Mn. 
Brookfield, he b&jb : 
"He [Pendennis] is a very 
good-natured, generous young 
fellow and I begin to like him 
considerably. I wimder whether 
he is interesting to me from 
selfish reasons and because I 
fancy we resemble each other in 
many points." Thackeray, Let- 
ters, 1847-1855, p. 66. 
Pendennis's personal appear- 
axuae was taken from that of 
Charies Lamb Kenny. {See Lady 
Ritchie's Introd. to Biog. ed. of 
Pendennis, p. xzxiii.)

uncle and guardian, a major on

delights in associating with the

"At a quarter past ten the 
Major invariaUy made his appear- 
ance in the best blacked boots in 

all London, with a checked morn- 
ing cravat that never was rumpled 
until dinner-time, a buff waistcoat 
which bore the crown of his 
sovereign on the buttons, and 
linen so spotless that Mr. Brummel 
himself asked the name of his 
laundress. . . . Pendennis's coat, 
his white gloves, his whiskers, his 
very cane were perfect of their 
kind as specimens of tiw costume 
of a military man en retraite. At 
a distance, or seeing his back 
merely, you would have taken 
him to be not more than thirty 
years old : it was only by a 
nearer inspection that you saw 
the factitious nature of his rich 
brown hair, and that there were a 
few crow's feet round about the 
somewhat faded eyes of his hand- 
some mottled face. Wa nose was 
of the Wellington pattern. His 
hands and wristbands were beauti- 




fully long and white. On the 
Utter he wore handtome gold 
buttons given him by his Royal 
Highness the Duke of York, anc 
on the others more than one 
elegant ring, the chief and largest 
of them being emblazoned with 
the famooi anns of Fnidainis." 

" It did the old fellow's heart 
good to see his name in the Morn- 
ng Poat amongst the Ust of the 
distingnished company which the 
Marquis of Steyne was entertaining 
at his country house at Stillbrook. 
He was a very us^nl and pleasant 
personage in a country house. 
He entertained the young men 
with queer Uttle anecdotes and 
grivoisea stories on their shooting 
parties, or in their smoking-room, 
where they laughed at him and 
with him. He was obsequious 
with the ladies of a morning, in 
the rooms dedicated to them. . . . 
He was invaluable in a country 
hoTiae, in a wtnd." Pen. M. 

In spite of all his worldly phil- 
osophy, he has a fondness for his 
nephew, and tries in his own way 
to advance Pen in the world. It 
is through his diplomacy that 
Pen's engagement to Miss Fother- 
ingay is terminated, and later he 
is instrumental in arranging an 
engagement between Pen and 
Blanche Amoty, which was to 
have given Pen a seat in Parlia- 
ment, ^th all his other quali- 
ties, he is stout-hearted and brave, 
as his valet Morgan discovers when 
he attempts to get the better of 
the Major.

" The Major had a sincere Uking 
and regard for his sister-in-law, 
whom he pronounced, and with 
perfect truth, to be as fine a lady 
as any in England. Indeed, Mrs. 
Fbndennis's tranqtdl beauty, her 
natural sweetness and kindness, 
and that simplicity and dignity 
which a perfect parity aad inno* 
cence are sure to bestow upon a 
handsome woman, rendered her 
quite w(»(hy d hex brother's 

"... this lady moved through 
the world quite regardless of all 
the comments that were made in 
her praises or disfavour. She did 
not seem to know that she was 
admired or hated for being so per- 
fect ; but carried on calmly through 
life, saying her prayers, loving 
her family, helping her neighbours, 
and doing her duty. 

"... Mrs. Pendennis had that 
vice which Miss Pybus and Miss 
Pierce discovered in her, namely, 
that of pride ; which did not vest 
itself so much in her own persmi, 
as in that of her family. She 
spoke abo'tt Mr. Pendennis (a 
worthy little gentleman enough, 
but there are others as good as he) 
with an awful reverence. . . . 
Hie Major slw Iwld to be a sort oi 

Bayard among Majors: and as 
for her bod Arthur, she wor- 
shipped Uwt yoath with an ardour 
which the young scapegrace ac- 
cepted almost as coolly aa the 
statue of the Saint in St. Ftoter's 
reoeivefl the rapturous osculations 
which the faithful deliver on his 
toe." Pen. ii. 

In her youth she had an un- 
happy love a£Fair with her cousin, 
Francis B,?I1 ; afterwards she mar- 
ried Mr. Pendennis, a man much 
older than herMlf. She ia an 
affectionate and indulgent mother, 
and after her husband's death her 
whole life is wrapped up in her 
8on and her adopted dMiahter 
Laura Bell. ' 

She ardently desires a maniage 
between her son and Laura and is 
much displeased with the latter 
fo. refusing Pen. She is so pure- 
minded and unworldly, that she 
misjudges her Mn's relaticma with 
Faiuiy Bolton, through her un- 
willingness to seek an explanation. 
In her delicate state of health, the 
rush of joy at finding him innocent 
proves too much for her and she 
dies suddenly.

He had made a lucky investment 
in laihroada, and, when his gains 
amount to £30,000, he resigns from 
domestic service, changes his name 
from Plush to de la Pluche, and 
sets himself up as a man of fashion 
and railroad magnate. When 
only a footman he had been in 
love with a fellow-servant, Mary 
Ann Hoggins, but when he be- 
comes one of the " Harrystoxy " 
he casts her off and resolves to 
marry only one of the nobility. 
His choice falls on Lady Angelina 
Thistlewood, whose father, the 
Eari of Bareacres, favours his 
suit and forces Lady Angelina into 
an unwilling engagement. Though 
he cannot quite forget Mary Ann, 
prepares for his wedding 
with modi lidicBloas splmdour, 
but Lady AT^tuMna jilts him and 

elopes with Captain Silvertop. 
In his preparations for the wed- 
ding Jeames had forgotten to 
watch the market, and now finds 
that his shares are down and he is 
ruined. After being imprisoned 
for debt he marries Mary Ann, 
and is established by Lady An- 
gelina as landlord of the " Wheel 
of Fortune" public-house, vihssn 
as plain Jeames Plush he finds 
more real happiness than in his 
real brief ezpetienoe of fashicaial^

" It is related, with regard to

thftt Queen Elizabeth in one of 
her progresses, stopping at Craw- 
ley to breakfast, was so delighted 
idth aomo remarkably fine Hamp-

the day , . . that she forthwith 
erected Ctvnley into a borough to 
send two mcmbera to Parliament ; 
and the place, from the day of 
that illustrious visit, took the 
name of Queen's Crawley, which 
it holds up to the present moment.

her superficial vulgarity. H. W.— 
Bav. i-viii ; as Mrs. Woolsey she 

appears alsu in I'hilip, for which 

" She was a kind, honest, and 
clever creature ; but, it must bs 
confessed, not refrisd. Whrnmrer 

she went she had, if not the 
finest, at any rate the most showy 
gown in the room ; her omamsBto 
were the biggest ; her hats, toques, 
berets, marabouts, and other fal- 
lals, always the most conspicuous. 
She drops " h's " here and theio. 
. . . The Ravenswing was a person 
admirably disposed by nature to 
be happy. She had a disposition 
BO kindly that any smaD attra^ 
would satisfy it ; was pleased 
when alone ; was delighted in a 
crowd ; was charmed with • 
joke, however old ; was always 
ready to laugh, to sing, to dance, 
or to be merry ; was so tender- 
hearted that the smallest ballad 
mnrid OMke Imt ojr; and 1mm 
was supposed by niaiqr persons 
to be extremely afsotod, and by 
almost all to be a downr^M 
coquette." ( h. iv. 

She is courted by both Woolsey 
the tailor and I'^glantine the per- 
ruquier, but when the flashy 
Captain Walker appears she falls 
in love with him and marries 
him, giving him all her small for> 
tone. To support her husband 
and child she goes on the stage, 
is very successful, and earns a 
good income, most of wiudi goes 
to support her disreputable hus-

Brussels had been in a state of

heard from the ladies who were in 
that town at the period, that the 
talk and interest of persons of 
their own sex regarding the ball 
was much greater even than in 
resjKJct of the enemy in their 
front. The struggles, intrigues, 
and prayers to get tickets were 
such as only English ladies will 
employ, in order to gain admis- 
siou to the society of the great of

" J. J., in his steady silent way, 
worked on every day, and for 
many hours every day. When 
Olive entered their studio of a 
morning he found J. J. there, and 
there he left him. When the Life 
.^»demy was over at night, and 
CUve went out to his soir&s, J. J, 
lighted his lamp and continued 
his h. ppy labour. He did not 
care lor the brawling supper- 
parties of his comrades; Uked 
better to stay at home than to go 
into the world. ... J. J. was 
fortunate as wen as skflful : people 
in the world took a liking to the 
modest young man. . . . His was 
a fortunate organization indeed. 
Study was his chief amusement. 
Self-denial came easily to him. 
Pleaaure, or what is generally 
called so, bad little charm for 
him. His ordinary companions 
were pure and sweet thoughts ; 
his outdoor enjoyment the con 
temjdal^ of natural beauty; 
for recreation, the hundred plea- 
sant dexterities and manipula 
tions of his craft were coaselesdy 
interesting to him : he would 
draw every knot in an oak panel, 
or every leaf in an orange tree, 
smiling, and taking a gay delight 
over the simple feats of skill : 
whenever you found him he 
seemed watchful and serene, his 
modest vitgin-Iamp always lighted 
and trim. No gusts of passion 
extinguished it ; no hopeless wan- 
dering in the darkness afterwards 
ledhimasteay." NeweomuaoMix.

" This man had a natnre most 

easily worked upon, and extra 
ordinarily quick to receive pair 
and pleasure, to tears, gratitude, 
laughter, hatred, liking. In hie 
preaching profession he had edu- 
cated and trained his sensibilities 
so that they were of great use to 
him ; he was for the moment what 
he acted. He wept quite genuine 
tears, finding that he could pro- 
duce them freely. He loved you 
whilst he was with you ; he had 
a real pang of grief as he mingled 
his sorrow with the widow at 
orphan; and, meeting Jack as 
he came out of the door, went to 
the tavern opposite, and laughed 
and roared over the bottle. He 
gave mcmey veiy readily, bat 
never repaid when he btMnnrod."

as his son was gloomy and severe. 
The Count's hotel at Nanci was 
one of the gayest of the little 
Court. His Protestantism was 
by no means austrae. He was

were no French convents for

they were accustomed to listen to 
their brother and lord with re 
spectful submission. They had a 
hundred domestic occupations ; 
they had baking and boiling, and 
pickling and wushing, and endless 
embroidery ; the life of the little 
chateau was quite supportable 
to them. They knew no better.

Savebne, Agnes de. Later Agnes

Her mother flies to England 
when Agnes is an infant. She is 
cared for loyally by the Duvals, 
and after her mother's death is 
entrusted by M. de la Motte to 
Mrs. Weston. She and Denis are 
boy and girl lovers, and though 
the story breaks off abmptiy 
when Denis goes to sea, it was 
already made clear that they 
are to marry later.

Duv. i-iv. 

ni-treated by her gloomy, bad- 
tempered husband, she soon learns 
to fear and dislike him, and falls 
in love with his friend the Cheva- 
lier de la Motte. At the birth of 
her daughter Agnes, while her 
husband is absent in Corsica, her 
mind gives way, and she secretly 
has herself and infant baptized 
into the Romish Church, though 
her husband is a rigid Protestant. 
In tem« ol bis reproaches, she 

flies with her child to her foster- 
sister, Mrs. Duval, in England, 
where she lives until her death, 
which does not occur until some 
time after her husband has been 
killed 1^ La Motte in a dad. 

Savebne, Fbancis Stanislas, 
COMTB de, formerly Vicomte db 
Babb. Agaes's father ; son of 
the old Comte de Saveme. D. 
Duv. i-iv. 

" In his youth Monsieur de Barr 
had served not without distinction. 
. . . His Protestantism prevented 
his promotion in the army. He left 
it, steadfast in his faith, but soured 
in his temper. He did not care 
for whist or music like his easy old 
father. His appearance at the 
Count's little suppers was as 
cheerful as a death's head at a 
feast. . . . 

" He was of an awful temper, 
uid subject to storms of passion. 
Being a very conscientions man, 
he suffered extremely after one 
of these ebullitions of rage. Be- 
tween his altematifms 61 anger 
and remorse, his life was a sad 
one ; his household trembled be- 
fore him, and especially the poor 
little wife whom he had brought 
out of her quiet country village 
to be the victim of his lage uA 
repentances." Ch. ii. 

He brings his friend, the Cheva- 
lier de la Motte, to his home, and 
is blind to the affecticm which 
springs up between his wife and 
the Chevalier. Bitterly disap- 
pointed that he had no children, 
he is deeply moved by the birtii 
of his daughter Agnes, which 
takes place when he is absent with 
tke army in Oonrica. Wben h* 




reaches home and finds that his 
wife has lost her reason and has 
fled with the baby, he is at first 
prostrated, but follows her to 
England. He challenges La Motte 
and is killed by the latter in a 
duel at Boulogne.

The Emperor's General was re-

Savoy. Brilliant and famous as 
a leader himself, and beyond all

the French King, Eugene had a

not be found in France since the

OU. i-ii. 

" Ottilia was pale and delicate. 
She wore her gUstening black 
hair in bands, and dressed in 
vapoury white muslin. She sang 
her own words to her harp, and 
they commonly insinuated that 
she was alone in the world — that 
she suffered some inexpressible 
and mysterious heart-pangs, the 
lot of all finer geniuses — that 
though she lived and moved in 
the world she was not of it— 
that she was of a consumptive 
tradmcy, and might look for a 
premature interment. She even 
had fixed on the spot where she 
should lie : the violets grew there, 
she said, the river went moaning 
by; the grey wiBow whispered 
sadly over her head, and her 
heart pined to be at rest. 
' Mother,' she would say, turning 
to her parent, * promise me — 
promise me to lay me in that 
spot when the parting hour has 
come.' " Ch. ii. 

She is the object of George 
Fitz-Boodle's adoration after he 
transfers his affections from Doro- 
thea. In spite (rf her «jMrif«e0t 
appearance and her pretensions 
afi a Muse, Ottilia has an enormous 
appetite, and she finally destroys 
George's affections by greedily 
eating bad oysters.

"For she could not only sing 
like a lark, or a Mrs. Billington, 
and dance like Hillisberg or Pari 
sot ; and embroider beautifully ; 
and qpdl well «i a Dizonary 
itadf ; but she had such a kindly, 
nniling, tender, gentle, generous 
heart of her own, as won the 
love of everybody who came 
near her . . . her nose was rather 
short than otherwise, and her 
cheeks a great deal too round 
and red for a heroine ; but her 
'ace blushed with rosy health, 

.id her lips with the freshest of 
smiles, and die had a pair of 
eyes which sparkled with the 
biightest and honestest good- 
humour, except indeed when they 
filled with tears, and that was 
a great deal too often ; for the 
silly thing would cry over a dead 
canaty-biid; or ovor a moose, 
that the eat haply had seized 
upon ; or over the end of a novel, 
were it ever so stupid; and as 
for saying an onkind word to 
her, were any person hard-hearted 
enough to do so — why, so much 
the worse for them." CSi. L 

" For ahoBOrt all men oame 


near her loved her; though no 
doubt they wouhl be at a loss to 
tell yon why. ShewasnotMDiant, 
nor witty, nor wise overmuch, nor 
extraordinarily handsome. But 
wherever she went die touc^^sd 
and charmed every one of the 
male sex, as invariably as she 
awakened the scorn and incredn* 
Uty <rf her own sisteriiood. I 
think it was her weakness which 
was her principal charm : — a kind 
of sweet submission and softness, 
which seemed to appeal to each 
man she met for his sympathy and 
proteotkm." Ch. zzzviiL 

She is so entirely devoted to 
George Osborne, to whom she has 
been e -gaged from ohUdhood, 
that she <ilmoBt sinks under the 
blow wht ' she is forced by her 
fatiier's baokmptoy to give him 
up, and almost worships him as 
a hero for his goodness in marry- 
ing her in spite of her poverty. 
After his death at Waterloo her 
whole existence centres in her 
child, Georgy, and in her memory 
of her 'dead hero. She idolises 
Georgy and hidign^ntly repels 
his grandfather's offer to take 
him, until she realizes that she 
is standing in tin boy's Ught, 
when her affection helps her to 
give him up. Though Major 
Dobbin, her husband's friend, 
has loved her devotedly for years, 
and she returns some of his 
affection, she carries her loyalty 
to her dead husband to such 
extremes tiiat she is blind to all 
his faults and resolutely jocts 
Dobbin's proposal of marriage, 
and treats him with great in- 
^ jnetioe. Eventually her eyes are 


opened to George's true ohumcter 

and she marries Major Dobbin. 

Note. — According to Thackeray's 
own staU'inent, the ohwaoter 
of Amelia was sketched partly 
from liis mother, Mrs. Car- 
miehcel Smyth, partly from 
hie wife, and partly from his 
friend, Mn. ^odtfield. (See 
Thackeray LeKen, 1847-1856,

The name Amelia was prob- 
ably taken from that of Thack- 
eray's grandmother, Amelia Webb, 
who married W. M. Thackeray 
the elder. (See Diet, of Nat. Biog., 
article Webb, John Richmond.) 

SxDUnr, John. Amelia's father. 

Van. F. iii-iv, vi, xii-xiii, xvii- 
xviii, XX, xxvi, xxxvii.-xxxviii, 
xlvi, 1, Ivi-lxi. 

He is very fond of Iiis wife and 
pretty daughter, but rather des- 
pises Ids fat son Jos, of whom he 
makes coarse sport. He specu- 
lates heavily against Napoleon's 
return, and is ruined when the 
latter lands a( Cannes. His 
bankruptcy ages and breaks him, 
and he never recovers his judg- 
ment and force, but engages in 
petty speculations, sells bad wine 
and poor coals, and lives in very 
straitened circumstanoea. 

Sbdlbt, Joseph, called Jos. Son of 

Mr. and Mrs. Sedley. The Collector 
of Boggley- Wallah ; a fat and 
ridioolous beau, vain, timid, boast- 
ful, and self-indulgent. Van. F. 
ii-vi, xvii, xxii, xzv-xxzii, xxxviii, 
xlvi, 1, Ivi-lxiii, Ixv-livii. 

" He was lazy, peevish, and a 
bon-vivatU; tiie appearance of a 
lady frightened him beyond mea- 
sure ; hence it was but seldom 


that he Jdned the paternal oirole 

in Russell Square, where there 
was plenty of gaiety, and wbeta 
the Jokea of his good«n«tafed dd 

father frigb>ned his amour-pro- 
pre. His bulk caused Joseph 
much anxious thought and alarm ; 
now and then he would make a 
desperate attempt to got rid of 
his superabundant fat ; but his 
indolence and love of good living 
speedily got the better of these 
endeavours at reform, and he 
found himself again at his throe 
meals a day. ^ never was well 
dressed ; but he took the hugest 
pains to adorn his big person, 
and passed many hours daily in 
that occupation. His valet made 
a fortune out of his wardrobe : 
his toilet-tablo was covered with 
as many pomatums and essenoM 
as evw were employed by an old 
beauty ; ho had tried, in order 
to give himself a waist, every 
girth, stay, and waistband Uwn 
invented. Like most fat men, 
he loovld have his clothes made 
too tight, and took care that they 
should be of the most brilliant 
colours and youthful cut. When 
dressed at length, in the afternoon, 
he would issue forth to take a 
drive with nobody in the Park; 
and then would como back in 
order to dress again and go and 
dine with nobody at the Piaoa 
Coffee-House. He was as vain 
as a girl ; and perhaps his extreme 
shyness was one of the results of 
his extreme vanity." Ch. iii. 

Though very timid before ladies, 
he is fascinated by Becky Sharp's 
charms, and almost proposes to 
her, but a am^etempa at Vauxhall 




frightena him off. Foim* of 
eiirting hUmmX with ^ "miU 
tary," he wears mustachios and 
a frogged coat, and aooompaniea 
the amy to Braawlg, whmioe, 
however, he floes in terror and 
deeerte his sister while the battle 
of Waterloo is ragir;/. This 
experience fornishee him with 
material tot many boastful stories, 
and on his return to India he 
gains quite a reputation for valour, 
and is known as Wateiloo Sedley. 
VVhcn no trouble to himself in in- 
volved he is not unkindly, makes 
his father an allowance, and later 
tokes Mr. Sedley and Amelia to 
live with him in London. When 
he meets Becky again in Pumper- 
nickel he falls quite in her toils 
again, becomes her patron, aOows 
her to control his money, and 
after insuring his life in her 
favour, dies miserabfy under 8us> 
picious circumstances.

" Nothing ever seemed to dis- 
turb the sweetness of his temper ; 
not debts ; not duns ; not misery ; 
not the bottle ; not his wife's an< 
happy position, or his children's 
ruined chances. He was perfectly 
fond of wife and children after bis 
fashion: he always had the 
kindest words and smiles for 
them, and ruined them with the 
utmost sweetness of temper. He 
never could refuse himself or any 
man any enjoyment which his 
money could purchase ; he would 
share his last guinea with Jack 
and Tom, and we may be sure he 
had a score of such retainers. He 
would sign his name at the back 
of any man's bill, and never pay 
any debt cf liis own. He would 
write on any side, and attack 
himself or another man with 
equal indifference. He was one 
of the wittiest, the most amiable, 
the most incorrigible of Irishmen. 
Nobody could help liking Charley 
Shandon who saw him once, and 
tboM whom he nimed could 

■oaroely be angry with him." 
Ch. zni. 

Note— One of the best pieces of 
portraiture in PtndeKiut is the 
character of Osptain Run* 
don, which Thackeray drew 
from his friend, Dr. William 
lligiiill. Ifaginn, like Shan- 
don, was a talented Irishman 
who was unable to keep out 
of a debtors' prison. Thack- 
eray's sketch at him aa Shan* 
don ia said to be tiie beat 
portrait of Maginn in exist* 
ence. (See Diet, of KU. Biog., 
article on llagimi, by Riohaid

that Jack Shcehan was the 
original of Captain Shandon 
seems inadmksiUe, at the

xxix-xxxiv, xxxvi-xxxvii, xl-xli, 
xliv-xlv, xlviii-xlix, li-liii, Iv,

"She was small and slight in 
person ; pale, sandy-haired, and 
with eyes habitually cast down : 
when they looked up they were 
very large, odd, and attoMtive. 
.... By the side of many tall 
and bouncing young ladies in the 
establishment, Rebecca 8harr< 
looked like a child. But she b < i 
the dismal precocity of povert j . 
Many a dun had she talked to and 
turned away from her father's 
door; many a tradesmui had she 
coaxed and wheedled into good- 
humour, and into the granting 
of one meal more. She sate com- 
BKmly with her father, who was 
very proud of her wit, and heard 
the talk of many of his wild com- 
panions— often but ill-suited for 
a girl to hear. But the never had 
been ft gill, abe Mid ; die had been 

a woman since she WM a^ft 

yean old." Ch.ii. 

EmIj thrown on ber own w> 

sources, Becky has but one aim, 
to marry well and make a sookl 
■o c c Mi. th6 wto bar cap at Jba 

Scdley, but, in spite of the havoc 
wrought by her fascinating green 
eyes, loeea him when success is 
nlmoet assured. After this failure 
she tries to bewitch Rawdon 
Crawley and marries him secretly, 
only to find, when too late, tLt i 
she might have married the 
baronet, his father, 'nstcad. When 
Rawdon is disinherited by his rich 
•ant, Becky managea for both by 
her ready wit and powar of 
wheedling, sc^s up ft fashionable 
establishment in London, and lives 
well on nothing a year by cajoling 
her admirers and^ruining trades- 
men who trust her. She persuades 
Pitt Crawley and Lady Jane to 
present her at Court, ttod through 
Lord Steyne's influence makes her 
debut in the « -y highest society. 
Her husband, < wevw, dkoovera 
her inf rigue wi > Lord Stejme, and 
though sl>r protests her innocence, 
a sep>:'ation results and Becky is 
ostraci cd by society, ar drifts 
into a Bohemian life in Continental 
resorts. Aft«r various experiences 
of a shady nature she meets 
Amdia and Joa at Pompemiokel 
and renews her old hold on the 
latter until she strips liim of his 
wealth and gets his insuruKse 
money after his death. The rest 
of her life is superficially respect- 
able, but her son rcfusea to hftva 
anjrthing to do with her. 

Note. — It seems reasonably oer- 
tain that the obaraoter of 




Becky Sharp was drawn from 
an original, although the 
name of hcnr prototype has 
been withheld. Lady Ritchie 
saw her and tbm desoribea 
her : 

. . one mot.iing a han- 
som drove up to the door, and 
out of it emerged a most 
charming, dazzling little lady 
dressed in black, who greeted 
my father with great affection 
and brilliancy, and who, de- 
parting presently, gave him a 
large bunch of fresh violets. 
This was the only time I ever 
sew the fascinating Uttle per- 
son who was by many sup- 
posed to be the original of 
Becky ; my father only 
laughed when people asked 
him, but he never quite 
owned to it." Vanity Fair,

" Lady Jane . . . was gentle, 
blushing, silent, and timid. In 
spite of his falling away, she wept 

for her brother and was quite 
ashamed of loving him still. . . . 
She admired her sister, she adored 
her mother, she thought Mr. 
Crawley the most delightful and 
accomplished of men, after South- 
down, that fallen angel : and her 
mamma and sister, who were 
ladies of the most superior sort, 
managed everything for her, and 
regarded her with that amiable 
pity, of which your really superior 
woman always has such a share 
to give away. Her mamma 
ordered her dresses, her books, 
her bonnets, and her ideas for 
her. She was made to takt [wny- 
riding, or piano-exercise, or any 
other sort of bodily medicament, 
according as my Lady Southdown 
saw meet : and her Ladyship 
would have kept het daof^ter hi 
pinafores up to her present age 
of six-and-twenty, but that they 
were thro^t'n off when Lady Jane 
was presented to Queen Char- 
lotte." Ch. zxxiii. 

In Miss Crawley's last days 

Lady Jane's gentleness wins her 
heart and induces her to make 
Pitt Crawley her heir. Lady Jane 
is obedient to her husband as she 
has been to her mother, is domes- 
tic, and devoted to her children. 
She treats Bawdon as a brother, 
and at first takes kindly to Becky, 
his wife, but soon feels vaguely 
that lady's real character and 
beocnnea leakrai oi Pitt's ndmira* 
tion for ber. When Becky's 





relatioiis with Lord Steyne are 
disoovend, Lady Jane asserts 
herself and interferes to prevent 
Pitt's attempt to reconcile Raw 
don and Rebecca. After Rawdon 
and his wife are separated Lady 
Jane adopts their Uttle son, 
Rawdmi, who already Iovm her 
as a son.

is a ceaseless din and life in theee 
courts, out of which you pan into 
the tranquil, old-fashioned quad-

grace. He was a decent scholar

Pen as much as the lad was dis- 
posed to ^esm, which was not 
much. For Pen had soon taken 
the measure of his tutor, who, 
when he came riding into the 
courtyard at Fairoaks on his pony, 
turned out his toes so absurdly, 
and left such a gap between his 
knees and the saddle, that it was 
impopsible for any lad endowed 
with a sense of humour to respect 
such an equestrian. ' Oh. iii.

Philip said he respected and ad- 
mired that woman : and worthy 
of respect she was in her way. 
She painted her face and grinned 
at poverty. She laughed and 
rattled with care gnawing at 
her side. She had to coax the 
milkman out of his human kind- 
ness : to pour oil — ^his own oil — 
upon the stormy Spicier'* soul ; 
to melt the butterman ; to tap 
the wine merchant ; to mollify 
the butchor; to invent new 
pretexts for the landlord . . . and 
this work done and the hour of

work for a woman to do ? To

To conjure up wine in piece and

To receive scorn, abuse, rebuffs,

Snobky spoke to her female

"Lady Mary Caerlyon was 
brought up at a Parisian Convent ; 
the Dauphiness Marie Antoinette 
was her godmother. In the pride 
of her beauty she had been 
married— sold, it was said— to 
Lord Gaunt ... and came to 
dwell at Gaunt House and to 
figure for a short time in the 
splendid Court of the Prince of 
Wales. Fox had toasted her. 
Morris and Sheridan had written 
songs about her. Mahnesbury 
had made her his best bow; 
Walpole has pronounced her 
charming ; Devonshire had been 
almost jealous of her; but she 
was Reared by the wild pleasure 
and g;«etM« of the Bociety into 
which she was flung, and after 
dte had borne a couple of sons, 
shrank away into a life of devout 
seolonon. No wonder that my 
Lord Steyne, who Kked pleasure 
and cheerfulness, was not often 
seen by the side of this trembling, 
silent, Boperstitioaa, onha^

" The candks lighted up Lord 
Steyne's shining bald head, which 
waa fringed with red hair. He had 
thick bushy eyebrows, with little 
twinkling blood-shot eyes, sur- 
rounded by a thousand wrinUes. 
His jaw was under-hung, and 
when he laughed, two white 
buck-teeth protnrfed themselves 
and glistened savagely in the 
midst of the grin. He had been 
dining with royal personages, and 
wore his garter and ribbon. A 
^hort man was his Lordship, 
broad-chested and bow-legged, but 
proud of the fineness of his foot 
and ankle, and always caressing 
his garter knee." Ch. xxxvii. 

He is at war with his eldest sMi, 
tyrannizes over his daughters-in- 
law, Mid oppresses his gentle and 
unhappy wife. Becky's charms 
subjugate him, and he enjoys 
her wickedness, even when she 
overreaches him. He gives her 
money and jewels, and into>- 
duces her into society, but his 
intrigue with her is discovered by 
Colonel Crawley, who knocks him 
down and wants to fight him.

" The Captain was splendid in 
person and raiment; fresh-col- 
oured, blue-eye), black- whiskered, 
broad-chested, athletic— a slight 
tendency to fulness did not take 
away from the comeliness of his 
jolly figure— a braver soldier never 
presented a broader chest to the 
enemy. As he strode down Claver- 
ing High Street, his hat on one 
side, his cane cUnking on the 
p ement, or wavmg round him 
in the execution of military cute 
and soldatesque manoeuvres— his 
jolly laughter ringing through tlie 
otherwise silent street— he was as 
welcome as suni^e to the place, 
and a comfort to every inhabitant 
in it. 

"He had a thousand stones 
about battles and dangers . . . 
about Greek captives, Polish 
beauties, and Spanish nuns. He 
could sing scores of songs, in 
half a dozen languages, and would 
Bit down to the piano and troll 
tliem off in » rich manly voice." 
Ch. xzii. 

He and Colonel Altamont live 
together for a while. He finally 
quarrels with Sir Francis, whom 
he knows to be a scoundrel, and 
goes into the wine business, 
j^ote.— Captain Glynn was the 
original of Captain Strong. 
In 1854 Thackeray wrote to 
Miss Idbby Strong and Miss 
Lucy Baxter : " A friend of 
mine is coming out to New 
York to whom I shall give a 
letter. He is a queer fellow, 
the original of the Chevalier 
Strong in Pendennis." (See 
Letters to an American Family, 
p. 193.) No name is men- 
tioned in this letter, and Miss 
Baxter has supplieu the in- 
formation that she does not 
know who was meant, as no 
such letter of introduction 
was ever presented. Major 
William H. Lambert, how- 
ever, has in his collection of 
Thackerayana three letters, 
from John F. Dexter, of 
London, to Mi. Prince, of 
Philadelphia, in which it is 
stated that the original of 
Captain Strong was undoubt- 
edlv Captain Glynn, an eccen- 
tric friend al Thackeray's 
who visited New York in 1856.

"Of Mr. Tufthunt's pAywjue 
and history it it neoewy tamtj 




to say, that he was the son of a 
country attorney who was agent 
to a lord ; he had been sent to 
a foundation school, where he 
distinguished himself for ten years, 
by fighting and being ? ';ged more 
than any boy of the five hundred. 
From the foundation school he 
went to college with an exhibition, 
which was succeeded by a fellow- 
ship, which was to end in a living. 
In his person Mr. Tufthunt was 
short and bow-legged ; he wore a 
sort of clerico-sporting costume, 
consisting of a black straight-cut 
coat and light drab breeches, with 
a vast number of buttons at the 
ankles." Shab. 0. S. viii. 

In A Shabby Oented Story he is 
a friend of Lord Cinqbars', and 
belongs to the same university as 
Brandon and Cinqbars. At the 
suggestion of the latter he per- 
forms the fraudulent marriage 
ceremony bet'VTcn Brandon and 
Caroline, hoping thus to have a

" He never read a book in his

"But honest Tom never gave 
up ' comrade as long as he was

was not out of scheming on Tom's

the bent of his mind, which was 
perfectly good-humoured, obliging

"Mrs. Woolcorab wanted no- 
body to tempt her away fron 
poor PhiHp. She hopped awaj 
from the old love as soon as evei 
the new one appeared with hii 
bag of money. She knew quib 
well to whom she was selling het 
self, and for what. The tempte 
needed no skill, or artifice, o 
eloquence ... but he showed ht 
a purse and three fine houseer- 
and she came. She knew quit 
as much about the world as pap 
or mamma; and the lawyei 
did not look to her settienai 


more warily, and coolly, than 
she herself did. Did Ae not Kve 
on it afterwards ? I do not say 
that she lived reputably, but 
most comfortably ... she receives 
a great deal of a certain kind of 
company ; ... she is scorned and 
flattered, and splendid, and lonely, 

and miserable She never cared 

for parents, sister, or brother; 
or for baby ; or for man (except 
once for Phihp a little, Uttle bit, 
when her pulse would sometimes 
go up two beats in a minute at 
his appearance). But she is un- 
happy, because she is losing her 
figure, and from tight lacing her 
nose has Ijecome very red, and 
the Tpeaxl powder won't lie on it 
somehow." Ch. xl. 

She is engaged to her cousin 
PhiUp Firmin for a short time, 
and is rather fond of him, but 
obeys her parents and gives him 
up as soon as a wealthier suitor 
presents himself in Mr. Woolco'".b. 
After her marriage she quarrels 
with her rich and stingy husband, 
and eventually is separated from

xxi-xxii, XXX, xxxvi, xl-xlii. 

" Talbot Twysden's dinner-table 
is large and the guestsmost respect- 
able. There is always a big-wig 
or two present, and a dining dow- 
ager who frequents the greatest 
houses. There is a butler who offers 
you wine ; there's a wienw de diner 
before Mrs. Twysden ; and to read 
it you would fancy you were at a 
good dinner. It tastes of chopped 
straw. Oh, the dreary sparkle of 
that feeble champagne ; the au- 
dacity of that public-house sherry; 
the swindle of that acrid claret ; 
the fiery twang of that clammy 

port It is a sham wine, a sham 

dinner, a sham welcome, a sham 
cheerfuhiefls among the guest* 

assembled Unless you are of 

the very great monde, Twysden 
and his wife think themselves 
better than you are, and seriously 
patronize you. They consider it 
a privilege to bo invited to those 
horrible meals to which they 
gravely ask the greatest folks in 
the country. . . . When foreign 
dukes and princes wrive Twysden 
straightway collars them, and in- 
vites them to his house. . . . And 
he elbows his way up to them at 
the minister's assemblies, and 
frankly gives them his hand. He 
says to success, ' Bravo.' . . On 
the contrary, I never saw a man 
more resolute in not knowuaig un- 
fortunate people." Ch. iv. 

Though Philip Hnnin is hto 
relative, Mr. Twysden tries to get 
Philip's fortune from him when 
' he thinks he himself has a 1^ 
th<>«gb not a naal right to it.

Twysden in the Roundabovi Pa-

Twysden, Mrs. Talbot. Sister of

success. Phil, iv-v, viii-ix, xiii 
XV, xxi, xxx-xxxi, xxxvi, xl-xli. 

" There may have been a time 
once when she was frank and 
cordial herself : ever so long ago, 
when she and her nister were two 
blooming girls, lovingly clinging 
together, and just stepping forth 
into the world. But if you succeed 
in keeping a fine house on a small 
income; in showing a cheerful 
face to the world, though op- 
pressed with ever so much care ; 
in bearing with dutiful reverence 
an intolerable old bore of a 
husband ... in submitting to 
def^ts patiently; to humilia- 
tions with smiles, so as to hold 
your own in your darling monde ; 
you may succeed, but you must 
give up being frank and cordial. 
. . . When Mrs. Twysden is in her 
open carriage in the Park, how 
prosperous, handsome, and jolly 
die looks— tJ» girls how smiling 
and young ... the horses look 
fat, the coachman and footman 
wealthy and aleek." Ch. iv.

when she marries Lord Castlewood, 
manages the Gai^wood ettalei, 



acting as steward. Virg. Ixvii- 
\xx, Ixxii-lxxiv, Ixndii-lxxxiY, 

" That quiet old man, and keen 
reckoner, began quickly to put the 
dilapidated Castlewood accounts 
in order, of which long neglect, 
poverty, and improvidence had 
hastened the ruin. Tlie business 
of the old gentleman's Ufe now, 
and for tome time henceforth, 
was to advance, improve, mend 
my Lord's finances ; to screw the 
rents up where practicable, to 
pare the expenses of the estabUsh- 
ment down. He could, somehow, 
look to every yard of worsted lace 
on the footmen's coats, and every 
pound of beef that went to their 
dinner. A watchful old eye noted 
every flagon of beer which was 
fetched from the buttery, and 
marked that no waste occurred 
in the larder." Ch. Ixxii. 

His ^ ^pift lingii of doubtful honesty 
make him unpopular in America 
during the war. 

Van DMT BosoH, Ltdia, later Lady 

Castlewood. Granddaughter a: 
the above, a pretty but ignorant 
and Retentions young lady with 
an exaggerated opinion of her own 
importance. Virg. Ixvii-lxxv, 
Izxxi-lzzxiii, xcii. 

"Though she is scarce seven- 
teen, no dowager of sixty can be 
more at her ease. She conversed 
with Aunt Lambert on an equal 
footing; she treated tte giris 
as chits— to Hetty's wrath and 
Theo's amusement. She talked 
pditiofl with the Qeaestl, and the 
last routs, dresses, operas, faahi<HiB, 
scandal, with such perfect ease 
that, bot for a Wonder oc two, yon 


might have fancied Miss Lydia 
was bom in Mayfair. At the 
Court end of the town she will 
live, she says ; and has no patience 
with her grandfather, who has a 
lodging in Monument Yard. For 
those who love a brown beauty, 
a prettier Uttle mignonne creature 
cannot be seen." Ch. Ixviii. 

When she first comes to Eng- 
land she has a fancy for George 
Esmond Warrington and sets her 
cap at him, but soon finds that 
her attempt is hopeless. Much 
sought after on account of her 
wealth, she marries Eugene, Lord 
Castlewood, and reigns supreme 
at Castlewood, and patronises all 
the family. Her marriage dc-is 
not prove a happy one, and she 
soon loses aU her beauty.

He is a stem and upright man, 
immersed in the affairs of state 
which are neglected by his plea- 
sure-loving father, the old Duke, 
and passionately devoted to his 
young wife, the Princess Olivia, 
who is twenty-seven years his 
junior. When he discovers her 
miserable intrigue with the Cheva- 
lier de Magny and realizes that 
not even Magny's death has been 
able to wean the Princess from 
her infatuation, he takes the 
terrible vengeance of having her 

no no 

privately put to death by the 

public executioner. 
Note, — ^The original of Prince 
Victor was Frederick, Duke 
(afterwards Elector and King) 
dl Wflrttemberg, who reigned 
1797-1816. His first wife, 
the Princess Augusta Caro- 
lina dt Brunswick - Wolfen- 
biittel, died in 1788 while 
he was still only hereditary 
prince. Rumours that her 
death was accompanied by 
suspicious circumstances were 
not lacking. The fullest and 
most circumstantial account 
is that in VEmvjpin, which 
Thackeray follows closely. 
Another version is given by 
WraxaU in his HitHorical Me- 
moirs, vol. 1, pp. 212-222. 
Prince Frederick married as 
his second wife Princess Char- 
lotte, daughter of George III 
of England, and Wrazall 
states that King George was 
sufficiently impressed by the 
sinistw repcnrts about the 
first wife's death to demand 
an investigation. Prince 
IVederick was able to offer 
satisfactory proofs of his in- 
nocence. There is no his- 
torical proof for either the 
story in L'Empire or Wrax- 
all's yeeAoia.

poverty. He had the soul of a 
batlu who had been brought from 



liiH i)aiitry to make fim in the 
drawing-room. His jokes were 
plenty, and hii good-nature thor- 
oughly genuine, but ho did not 
seem to understand that a gentle- 
man could wear an old coat, or 
that a lady could be leflpectable 
unless she had her carriage, or 
employed a French milliner." 
Pendennia, xxv. 

" Wngg's white waistcoat spread 
out . . . with profuse brillian(7 ; hi« 
burly red face shone resplendent 
over it, lighted up with tha 
thoughts of good jokes and a 
good dinner. Ho liked to make 
his entrie into a drawing-room 
with a laugh, and, when he went 
away at night, to leave a joke 
exploding bt'''i>id him. No per- 
sonal calamil )r distresses . . . 
could altogetbci- keep his humour 
down. Whatever his griefs might 
be, the thought of a dinner rallied 
his great soul ; and when he saw 
a lord, he saluted him with a 
pun." Pendennif cxxiv.

" There was scarcely any differ- 
ence in the beauty, strength, or 
stature <rf tiie twins. In dispo- 
sition, they were in many points 
exceedingly unlike ; but in feature 
they resembled each other so 
closely, that, but for the colour 
of their hair, it had been difficult 
to distinguish them. In their 
beds, and when their heads were 
covered with those vast ribboned 
nightcaps which our great and 
little ancestors wore, it was 
scarcely possible for any but a 
nurse or a mother to tell tiM one 
from the other child. 

" Howbeit, alike in form, wo have 
said that tlwy differed in temper. 
The elder was peaceful, studious, 
and silent ; the younger was 
warlike and noisy. He was quick 
at learning when ho began, but 
very slow »i beginning. No 

tiireats of the ferule would pro- 
voke Harry to learn in an idle fit, 
or would prevent George from 
helping his brother in his lesson. 
Harry was of a strong military 
turn, drilled the little negroes on 
the estate, and caned them like a 
corporal, having many good box- 
ing-matches with them, and never 
bearing malice if he was worsted ; 
—whereas George was sparing <rf 
blows, and gentle witli all about 
him." Ch. iii. 

Like his grandfather. Colonel 
Esmond, he is generous and gentle, 
and possesses a high sense of 
honour, but is also jealous, mor- 
ose, and unforgiving, and inherits 
his mother's unyielding pride. 
Throughout life he is devotedly 
fond of his twin brother Harry, 
and generously admires the latter's 
good traits, so different from his 
own. His early home life is not 
particularly happy, because of 
the clash between his personality 
and that of his mother. His 
jealousy leads him to quarrel with 
Washington. After Braddock's 
expedition he is givrai up for dead, 
but escapes from his imprison" 
ment and follows his brother to 
England, where he generously 
pays Harry's ^bts and shares 
his money with him. Fond of 
books and a quiet, orderly life, 
he settles in London and devotes 
himself to literature. After writ- 
ing a successful play he marries 
Theo Lambert against his mother's 
wishes, and his allowance is there- 
fore discontinued for several years. 
He bravely endures poverty, and 
turns tutor until he becomes his 
unole'i heir aad later inherits 


Sir BlilcB'B titie and estate". Dur- 
ing the American Revoiucion he 
fights on the side of the King, al- 
though in no other way divided

the Continental army. An ances-

Younger of the twin sons of

"His title of Fortunate youth 
was pretty generally recognised. 
Being yoimg, wealthy, good-look- 
ing, and fortunate, the faddonable 
world took him by the hand and 
made him welcome. Harry was 
liked because he was likeable ; be 
cause he was rich, handsome, 
jovial, well-bom, well-bred, brave ; 
because, with jolly topers, he 
liked a jolly song and a bottle ; 
because, with gentlemen sports 
men, he loved any game that 
WM »>foot or a-horseback; be- 
cause, with ladies, he had a modest 
blushing timidity which rendered 
the lad interesting; because, to 
those hnmUw than btmself in 
degree he was alwa3rB magnifi- 
cently Uberal, and anxious to 
spue vmoyvace. Our Virginian 
was very grand, and hi^ and 
mighty, to be sure, but in those 
times, vrhai the distinott<»x of 

287 WAB 

ranks yet obtained, to be high 
and distant with his inferiors 
brought no unpopularity to a 
gentleman." Ch. xHii. 

After his brother's supposed 
death in Braddock's campaign 
Harry goes to England, where he 
becomes a favourite of his worldly 
old aunt. Madam Bernstein, and 
leads a gay, careless life. Soon 
after his arrival in England he 
becomes engaged to his elderly 
cousin. Lady Maria Esmond, and 
generously refuses to break his 
word to her when his infatuation 
for her is ended, though his relief 
is great when she finally sets him 
free. When he is imprisoned for 
debt and released by his brother, 
who unexpectedly appears, he 
greets George with joy and does 
not for one instant regret his 
changed position. Having al- 
ways possessed military tastes, 
he joins the army and distin- 
guishes himself for bravery, serv- 
ing under General Wolfe. Later 
he returns to Virginia, marries 
Fanny Mountain, who rules him, 
and becomes a distinguished officer 
in the Continental army, serving 
under Washington, whom he has 
always admired.

time of hfe. . . . Himself of the 
most scrupulous gravity and good- 
breeding, in his communication 
with other folks he appeared to 
exact, or, at any rate, to occasion, 
the same behaviour. His nature 
was above levity and jokes: 
they seemed out of place when 
addressed to him. He was slow 
of comprehending them : and 
they slimk as it were abashed out 
of his society. . . . His words 
were always few, but they were 
always wise ; they were not idle, 
as our words are, they were grave, 
sober, and strong, and retwiy on 
occasion to do their duty." Ch.ix.

ablest and bravest lieutenants he 
ever had. 

" His rancour against the Duke 
was so apparent, that one saw it 
in the first half-hour's conversa 
tion with General Webb." 
^o<e.— Thackeray's distant rela- 
tionship to General Webb 
should be noted. Amelia, 
daughter of Colonel Richmond 
Webb, a cousin of the half 
blood to General Webb, mar 
ried William Makepeace 
Thackeray the elder, anc 
became the grandmother o: 
the novelist. Thackeray 
studied Webb's military ca- 
reer with especial minuteness, 
and liis description of the 
battle of Wynendael in Ea- 
mond is said to be the best 
extant. (See Diet. Nat. Biog.,

and, we will say, just a teaspoon-

a man naturally partial to blonde 
beauties, has cast his opal eyes

neatest little yellow kid gloves

. . . and <m the magnificent 
horse s neat little man wHli a 
blazing red flower in his bosom, 
and glancing opal eyes, and a dork 
complezicm, and hair so very 
black and curly that I really al- 
most think in some of the Southern 
States of America he would be 
likely to meet with rudeness in a 
railway car. ... He is a stingy 
Black Prince, and most averse to 
parting with his money except 
for his own adornment or amuse- 
ment. When he receives at his 
country hoiise, liis entertainments 
are, however, splendid. He has 
been flattered, followed, caressed 
all his life and allowed by a fond 
mother to have his own way, and 
as this has never led him to learn- 
ing ... his literary acquire- 
ments are small and his writing 
defiective. But in the manage- 
ment (A his pecuniaiy afiain he 

is very keen and dmr.** Gh. 


Though ignorant, stingy, and 
vulgar, he is much courted by
